Roma striker Mirko Vucinic may yet complete a summer move to the Premier League, following recent comments made to the Italian media. The 25-year-old Montenegrin front-man has netted 22 league goals in 85 appearances for the Stadio Olimpico outfit since arriving from Lecce in 2006, and bagged a brace in a 3-1 win against the Blues in the Champions League last season. And the 6ft 1in striker has already been linked with moves to Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea, with the Gunners reportedly earmaking the forward as a possible replacement for Emmanuel Adebayor. The player's agent, Alessandro Lucci, recently refuted reports that the Gunners had made an approach for the striker. However, Roma are believed to be open to offers for the likes of Vucinic and midfielder Alberto Aquilani - who has been tipped to join Liverpool - to help balance their books. Following the club's Europa League qualifier against Racing Gent, the former admitted that he was not 100 percent certain where his future lies. “In football you can never know what’s going to happen,” he said. “However, I do have the right to continue wearing the Giallorossi shirt that I love.” While Roma president Rosella Sensi did little to allay fears that the club's prize assets could be departing for pastures new. "I really don't know. I cannot say anything at the moment," she told Il Corriere Dello Sport. "We have to see what happens, and we would have to speak with those involved. I cannot answer any questions on transfers."
