Mirko Vucinic is training away from the Juventus first team until the transfer window closes amid reported interest from Arsenal and Tottenham.
The 30-year-old Montenegro striker has fallen out of favour at Juventus and is widely expected to leave the Serie A giants this week.
Southampton have also been linked with Vucinic and his agent, Alessandro Lucci, has confirmed that he is likely to change clubs before Friday’s transfer deadline - even though he hasn’t asked for a move.
“Vucinic spoke with [manager Antonio] Conte and they have agreed he will train apart in these last days of the transfer market because he is involved in some possible negotiations,” Lucci told Sky Sport Italia.
“But I want to say that Mirko has never asked to be sold.”
