2009/ 10 HNL1 lead scorer Davor Vugrinec looks set to make a decision on his future imminently after his club NK Zagreb returned to first team training. The 35 year old is on the hunt of Igor Cvitanovic to become the leagues highest ever scorer, but is keen to choose the right club to achieve his aspirations. After playing with a struggling side last season, Vugrinec may try out in a different environment and HNK Rijeka currently look good to sign him.

Vugrinec was outstanding in his previous spell with Rijeka, who may pair him with Radomir Dalovic. NK Zagreb coach Ivo Susak is not optimistic he can count of Vugrinec or Goran Ljubojevic next season. Powerhouse striker Ljubojevic has been highly impressive during his trial with AIK Stockholm and it seems his purchase from Zagreb is a formality. Susak therefore wants a experienced forward to replace them. Dario Zahora or Cibalia target Mladen Bartolovic would appear to fit the bill. Tomo Sokota could also prove a major purchase, but it isn't known yet if the 33 year old can still earn a contract abroad after leaving Lokeron where he scored 7 times.

The future of Ivan Bosnjak also appears to be up in the air. Now, 31 Bosnjak was believed to be interesting Dinamo Zagreb. However the players chance of first team action would appear limited by the presence of Miroslav Slepicka, Andrej Kramaric and Dodo. The player can also play right midfield, however it seems Bosnjak would be blocked by Ivan Tomecak and Sammir.

Another club looking for a forward is Istra Pula 1961 who still hope to keep Asim Sehic, but will lose Khallilou Traore. Pula do not appear to have the ambitions previously thought. Pula may be another one of the teams in the hunt for Mladen Bartolovic. Karlo Primorac is also still looking for a new employer.
