Roma offer Player Swap Arsenal's Gael Clichy

AS Roma are considering offering Montenegro international striker Mirko Vucinic to Arsenal in exchange for Gael Clichy.The French left back has been linked with an exit from Emirates Stadium recently, as his contract has just a year to run, and was rumoured to be the subject of a bid from Liverpool last week.Vucinic is unsure whether he will continue at Roma after the club's new owners looked to bring in a new era at Stadio Olimpico.The forward, at his best when cutting in from the left, is attracting a lot of interest from abroad, according to his his agent Alessandro Lucci."It's not news that two English clubs are interested in Vucinic, but it must firstly be understood whether the relationship with Roma is definitely over," said Lucci to Sky Italia."Only in that case will the alternatives be taken into consideration.

"For the moment we are only in the first phase. It's not the right moment to talk about Vucinic and other clubs.

"He feels good in Rome, he has friends and he has his home and the will to stay, but in football it happens that something can break."

Clichy is an excellent defender in one-on-one situations, tackling, and when tracking back thanks to his pace, but is prone to errors when his team employs the offside trap.

Both Roma and Liverpool clearly rate him though, and if no new deal is forthcoming at the Emirates Stadium, he may find his future elsewhere
