Three London clubs show interest in Juventus pair

Out-of-favour Juventus strikers Mirko Vucinic and Fabio Quagliarella may find English clubs after Bianconeri director Beppe Marotta's trip to London.

Juventus director Beppe Marotta has received several expressions of interest in strikers Mirko Vucinic and Fabio Quagliarella during a trip to London, the Italian press report.

Serie A leaders Juventus are still reeling from the blow of exiting the Champions League at the first hurdle but must look to move on during this transfer window.

The Old Lady lead the Serie A table and will be hoping to bring in new faces to maintain their title push despite only being able to offer Europa League football this term.

Before Juve can buy they are expected to sell as they have a large squad including a number of attacking options currently warming the bench, including Montenegro international Vucinic and Italian World Cup winner Quagliarella.

Tuttosport reports that Marotta has just returned from a trip to London during which he discussed the future of both players with Arsenal, Tottenham and West Ham.

The paper insists that all three clubs were interested in the players with West Ham showing the greatest enthusiasm.

However, the Hammers are reportedly looking to sign one of the two, probably Quagliarella, on a free loan for the rest of the season, paying only his wages.

Tuttosport states that Marotta wouldn't consider such a deal as he is at least looking for a co-ownership deal with another Italian side if not a permanent sale.
