Vucinic headed for Abu Dhabi

Former Arsenal and Tottenham target Mirko Vucinic appears to be headed for United Arab Emirates side Al Jazira Club.

Montenegro international striker Mirko Vucinic is reportedly on the verge of leaving Juventus for a fresh start in Abu Dhabi.

The 30-year-old has become surplus to requirements at Juventus and spent a frustrating 2013-14 season waiting for opportunities from the bench.

The successful partnership of Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente seems unbreakable in Turin and Vucinic has resigned himself to finding a new club.

Vucinic already had his bags packed in January when he was set to be included in a swap deal with Inter midfielder Fredy Guarin.

However, the deal fell through at the eleventh hour and Vucinic was left in a difficult position with fans and teammates knowing he had chosen to leave.

Arsenal and Tottenham have reportedly considered swooping for Vucinic but it has been suggested that the striker wasn't keen on moving to England.

According to Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, Vucinic has now been the subject of a £5m from United Arab Emirates side Al Jazira Club and a deal is imminent.

Juventus are happy with the figure and it seems that Vucinic's personal terms will also be agreed, but the player is yet to put pen to paper.

Vucinic may be waiting to see if another offer arrives from within Europe before he commits to playing his football in the UAE Arabian Gulf League.
