Roma would consider selling Mirko Vucinic to Juventus if Claudio Marchisio is part of the deal - report

Capital-based side would ponder parting company with the Montenegro international if the Piedmont side insert their Italian midfield player into the arrangement
Roma may consider selling striker Mirko Vucinic to Juventus if the Turin-based side insert Claudio Marchisio as part of a deal, according to reports.

Juventus have focused their efforts on bringing in Sergio Aguero of Atletico Madrid as their first choice striker.

Vucinic, 27, is seen as an alternative for Antonio Conte's men if the Aguero chase proves fruitless, but Roma are not keen on losing him.

Director Walter Sabatini has been clear on insisting the Montenegrin stay, but La Gazzetta dello Sport reports the insertion of Marchisio could change that. The Italian midfielder would fit into Luis Enrique's side as Conte's 4-2-4 system may prove to have its limits as Andrea Pirlo is expected to start regularly.

It is said a transfer for Vucinic, who is tied to Roma until 2013, would cost around €12 million for potential buyers, but Juventus could lower that fee by including their midfielder as part of a deal.

Alessandro Lucci, Vucinic's agent, recently said his client would only leave the capital for a club of similar level after he was linked with Premier League club Blackburn Rovers.
