Blackburn launch bid for Roma striker Vucinic

Blackburn Rovers are moving for AS Roma striker Mirko Vucinic.

The Mirror says Rovers boss Steve Kean is willing to match Juventus in the chase for the respected but for-sale forward - with the bidding tipped to go above £10million.

Vucinic's camp claim Roma are ready to move the Serie A star on and Kean is in the bidding as he looks to start dipping into his £20m summer kitty.

The Rovers chief has been tracking Vucinic for months and the sale of Phil Jones to Manchester United has given him the funds to fight with Juve for the striker.

Vucinic has been well-regarded around Europe because of his displays for club and country.

Now his availability has sparked Rovers and Juve into life, with Tottenham also observing developments.
