European Football - Spalletti wants Vucinic at Zenit

Juventus forward Mirko Vucinic could be reunited with ex-Roma coach Luciano Spalletti at Zenit St Petersburg.

The striker had emptied his locker and passed a medical at Inter before the club sensationally pulled the plug on the exchange with Fredy Guarin on Tuesday evening.

He is now in a transfer 'No Man’s Land', not called up for the Lazio-Juventus game and waiting to see what his next step will be.

Arsenal and Monaco have been linked, but according to Sport Mediaset the latest contenders are Zenit.

The Russian team has Vucinic’s former Roma boss Spalletti at the helm and working together allowed the Montenegro talent to have his best season.

Meanwhile, it’s reported Inter have still not let go of the idea of signing Vucinic this month, but need to smooth things over with Juventus before agreeing to take him on loan.
