Blackburn boss Steve Kean is facing defeat in his ambitious bid to land Roma striker Mirko Vucinic.
The Montenegro international's agent has met Juventus officials and hopes to clinch a £12million-plus deal in the next few days.
Kean had been given the go-ahead to mount a bid for Vucinic following the money-spining sale of centre half Phil Jones to Manchester United.
However, the attraction of staying in Serie A is swaying Vucinic, leaving Kean close to switching his search away from the respected frontman.
