Tottenham eye up Serie A ace

Roma's Miralem Pjanic

Tottenham are interested in signing Roma midfielder Miralem Pjanic, according to The Daily Mail.

Manager Andre Villas-Boas is keen to bring Pjanic to the Premier League, for an expected fee of £20million.

Pjanic, who scored three goals last season for Roma, has been highly linked with a move to Tottenham, as well as La Liga giants Barcelona. Earlier this year, the Bosnian midfielder claimed that the Catalan side had approached him.

“It’s true, Barcelona are tracking me and enquired about my situation with my club,” he said.

While Spurs may have to fight Barca for the midfielder, they are unlikely to battle with rivals Arsenal for the 23-year-old. The Gunners were close to signing Pjanic from Lyon, before he moved to the Italian capital.

Pjanic has scored three goals in four World Cup qualifiers for Bosnia and Herzegovina, as the nation top their group ahead of the 2014 tournament in Brazil.

The playmaker has completed his second season with Roma, where he has scored six league goals in his time.

Roma missed out on a Europa League spot last season by four points, as they finished in 6th place, behind Udinese. The club then missed out on a second chance to qualify for the European competition, as they lost the Coppa Italia to rivals Lazio.

Would Pjanic do well at White Hart Lane? Is he worth £20million?
