Tottenham Hotspur will face opposition from Bayern Munich if they choose to try and push through a deal for Roma striker Mirko Vucinic.

Roma are wiling to cash in on Vucinic, but only for the right price and at present Spurs have refused to better a €15M offer – not enough for the Giallorossi to sell.

The 27-year-old has now begun to attract attention from Bayern Munich however, who appear ready to trump Spurs’ offer to take the Montenegrin striker to the Allianz Arena.

Reports from Italy via Gazzetta dello Sport confirm that the German side have informed Roma of their willingness to pay either a flat fee of €18M for Vucinic or €15M plus left back Diego Contento.

Vucinic was keen on the prospect of a switch to Tottenham Hotspur, but Harry Redknapp now looks likely to have to increase the club’s offer if he wants to beat off interest from Bayern Munich in the striker.

The former Lecce hitman found the back of the net 11 times last season, a slightly disappointing total as his previous two seasons with the Giallorossi had yielded 17 and 19 goals respectively.
