Vucinic 'aiming higher than Blackburn'

Roma striker Mirko Vucinic is “aiming higher than Blackburn,” said his agent. “We can target a prestigious club.”

The Montenegro international has made it clear he wants to leave the Olimpico this summer, but so far the biggest offer has reportedly come from Blackburn Rovers.

“We had an initial meeting with director Walter Sabatini three weeks ago and will get back together for talks when Vucinic returns from vacation,” agent Alessandro Lucci told Sky Sport Italia.

“We have had no contact with Blackburn. They are a respectable club, but we aspire to something higher than Blackburn and can aim for a prestigious side.

“Vucinic is unhappy because of the environment he is in and is a result of the rapport between player and fans. For many months now he is no longer loved by the supporters.

“Now Mirko needs to relax and a solution will be found.”

However, Lucci also suggested talk of Juventus was overblown by the newspapers.

“The two clubs have never spoken. It's true I met with the Juventus directors, but we talked about many players and they just asked for information on Vucinic. We never got into details.”
