€15m Chelsea target aims to achieve great feats like ‘legend’ Lampard

Published 9 Comments

Miralem Pjanic has admitted he’s flattered by a transfer link to Chelsea.

The 22-year-old midfielder is rumoured to be a target for the Blues, with the European Champions looking for a possible replacement for Frank Lampard, according to SkySports.

The England international is out-of-contract at Stamford Bridge at the end of the season, and is expected to move away from west London after 12-years and two Premier League titles with the club.

And Pjanic, who reiterated that he has a contract with AS Roma, admits that he hopes he could one day achieve the same great feats as Lampard has during his career to-date.

"I am flattered to be linked with a team such as Chelsea, a European Cup winner, but I have a contract here at Roma,” he’s quoted as saying on SkySports.

"Could I replace Frank Lampard? He is a legend there. He has done so much for the club and I hope to achieve such feats myself one day."

Despite the Bosnian playmaker’s desire not to commit on interest in a move, reports in Italy claim the Serie ‘A’ club would be willing to listen to offers over €15 million.

It remains to been seen whether interim Chelsea manager Rafael Benitez gets control of funds in the transfer window, although the Spaniard did drop hints about new additions in January last week, according to The Independent.
