Andre Villas-Boas could be poised to go head-to-head with his old club Tottenham Hotspur this summer, as the Portuguese eyes swooping for Juventus striker Mirko Vucinic.

The out-of-favour Juventus hitman has four clubs keen to snap him up this summer, with Villas-Boas' Zenit St. Petersburg one of his suitors.

According to Italian outlet Calcio Mercato, Tottenham are also interested, along with Fiorentina and Olympiacos.

Vucinic had been expected to leave Juventus in January, with Arsenal keen to sign him on loan, after growing disillusioned at his first team chances in Turin.


He is almost certain to be on the move this summer and Villas-Boas wants to tempt the Montenegrin to Russia.

That could place him on a collision course with Tottenham, if they decide to firm up their interest.

Spurs sacked Villas-Boas as boss in December.
