Ivan Strinic: Attracting interest from England

The 25-year-old is currently with Ukrainian outfit Dnipro - but is being tipped to leave this summer.

Italian champions Juventus are being strongly linked, but the player's agent admits that at the moment it is Stoke and Sunderland leading the race.

"I read in newspapers that Juventus want Strinic but the truth is that nobody from that club talked with me about it," his agent Tonci Martic told 24sata.

"Some time ago we did but not only about Strinic. For now the most interested clubs come from the Premier League in England.

"Dnipro wants €9million, Stoke City and Sunderland offers little less than that though at the moment."

Martic stated earlier this month that Sunderland's offer had been rejected by Dnipro.
