Roma’s Pjanic could join former team-mate Lamela in England.
AS Roma star Miralem Pjanic has started the current campaign in sparkling form and Manchester United, Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur are all keeping tabs on the attacker.
There is hope for the Premier League trio, as the 23-year-old has not ruled out a move to England – although it won’t be in the near future.
“I won’t exclude the possibility of one day playing elsewhere, but I doubt this will happen soon,” Pjanic was quoted by The Daily Star.
“It certainly won’t be in January, which is what some people have said, and certainly not in the next year and a half either.”
Spurs signed their club record transfer from Roma this summer when Erik Lamela arrived in north London for £30m.
Back in early August Tottenham were linked with a move for the Bosnian, with reports in the Mirror suggesting the attacking midfielder would follow former Roma sporting director Franco Baldini to White Hart Lane.
As it was Lamela made the switch instead, but after scoring three goals and providing four assists in an impressive season in Serie A so far, Pjanic remains on their radar.
Andre Villas-Boas and Baldini will face competition from league rivals however, as Football Italia suggested in late October that the Red Devils were lining up a €30m bid.
Of the three sides interested it is United that most lack creativity in midfield, with Pjanic’s preferred role in the No.10 slot the perfect remedy for that.
Yet City are also in the market, as always, for new talent and price is no object for the super-rich club.
They already have one Bosnia international in Edin Dzeko and the striker has previously made it clear the 27-year-old would like to see Pjanic at the Etihad Stadium.
“I have recommended Pjanic before to Manchester City – they know all about him,” Dzeko was quoted by ESPN.
“I wouldn’t be surprised if Pjanic came to City, and I sincerely hope he does.”
As it is it seems the forward will remain at the Stadio Olimpico for at least little while longer, but it will give the trio hope that Pjanic is open to the possibility of a move away from Italy.
