Bundesliga champions Stuttgart are interested in signing Shakhtar Donetsk's Romanian talent Ciprian Marica.

Coach Armin Veh is currently preparing his squad for UEFA Champions League football and is keen to add the Shakhtar striker to his squad.

Following Jon Dahl Tomasson's permanent switch to Villarreal and Marco Streller's departure to FC Basel, Veh wants to maintain Stuttgart's firepower.

"We are currently in talks with the interested parties," confirmed Stuttgart's official spokesman Oliver Schraft, who added that the club are seeking a loan deal.

Shakhtar Donetsk bagged the former Romanian Under 21 skipper for ‚é¼6milllion (£4million) two years ago but he is now seeking pastures new due to stress.
