Roma and Montenegro international forward Mirko Vucinic is not interested in a move to Blackburn Rovers this summer, with his agent saying that his client “deserves a more prestigious club.”
Alessandro Lucci, the player’s agent, told Sky Italia: “I have not heard anything. For now it’s on standby because first we want to understand the intentions of Roma. Blackburn talk is just a rumour. It is a respectable club but I think Mirko deserves a more prestigious club.”
27-year-old Vucinic is believed to be interesting in leaving the eternal city, his relationship with Roma fans having cooled over the past six months, despite his 10 goals in Serie A last season. However, the Giallorossi only finished in 6th position and Vucinic, who has also been linked with Juventus, is believed to favour a new challenge, having become a target for the Roma boo-boys.
When pressed on the issue of a potential move to Juventus, Lucci said: “The two clubs have never spoken.
“I met with Juve, but also for other players. To date there have been no negotiations. Juve are a prestigious club, like Roma. Vucinic will either remain in the capital, or will aim for a team of a similar level.”
