Juventus's Mirko Vucinic and Emanuele Giaccherini look set to join the Premier League with Fulham and Sunderland respectively looking to buy.

The Serie A champions are looking to kick on and succeed in Europe meaning fringe players will be let go.


Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente have been added to the striking department meaning Vucinic's place in the starting XI is far from guaranteed.

Roma want to bring Vucinic back to the Stadio Olimpico, however the Montenegro international is believed to want to move to a new league.

Fulham lead the race to sign the 29-year-old in an attempt to bolster their attacking options.

Dimitar Berbatov was the sole Fulham player to register double figures last season and Vucinic would certainly improve their squad.

The likes of Mladen Petric and Hugo Rodallega struggled at Craven Cottage in their first year with the club and if manager Martin Jol can bring in Vucinic then the duo's adventure with Fulham may be a brief one.


Sunderland look certain to continue their summer spending with the addition of Giaccherini.

The two clubs are reported to have agreed a £8million fee for the former Cesena winger and the player is expected to hold talks with the club as early as tomorrow.

Giaccherini has struggled to break into the Juve first team since his arrival in 2011, however shone for Italy at the recent Confederations Cup.

Giaccherini, along with Velez Sarsfield's Gino Peruzzi are expected to bring Sunderland's transfer additions to nine this summer.
