Tottenham have been linked with moves for many players over the course of this summer but when a new name crops up it seems worthy of mention. Roma’s Bosnian international Miralem Pjanic is that name and although this may well be more paper talk, there have been worse players mentioned as possible replacements for Luka Modric.
Pjanic is just 22 and has played for most of his senior career in France – with Metz and then Lyon. He moved to Roma as recently as 2011 but it’s felt that his club will allow him to leave, as long as they can keep Daniele De Rossi – who has been subject to interest from Manchester City.
Pjanic has 31 full international caps to his name and has developed into a real prospect while in Serie A. Roma paid just over £8m for his services a year ago but it’s rumoured that a bid of £12m will be enough to see that player move on once again.
