Juventus reportedly want to sell attacker – he could be ideal for Tottenham

Juventus are reportedly open to selling Mario Mandzukic this summer, which could be something of interest to Tottenham Hotspur.

The Croatia international only signed a new deal in April, but Goal understand that Max Allegri’s departure could now see him leave.

The report states that Maurizio Sarri is expected to take over in Turin and that he will again turn to Gonzalo Higuain.

Mandzukic has apparently been deemed dispensable and could therefore be sold a little bit cheaper than if Allegri was still in charge.

With Spurs looking set to lose Fernando Llorente on a free transfer, perhaps a move for the forward could be shrewd business.

TBR’s view

Mandzukic would be a decent replacement for Llorente.

 

He may be 33 years old, but the star could simply be brought in as backup for Harry Kane, and used in the same way as Llorente has been.

Physically Mandzukic is quite similar to the Spaniard and would bring that something different off the bench.

He has a strong winning mentality having enjoyed many trophy-laden seasons with Juve, Atletico Madrid and Bayern Munich.

To date he has scored 188 goals in his career, and his versatility could be quite useful for Spurs next term.

Gazetta dello Sport (via Calciomercato) claim China or Borussia Dortmund are two options for the player so the Champions League runners-up – who are no strangers to signing Croatian players – would have to act quickly.
