Tottenham Hotspur are being linked with a summer move for Roma midfielder Miralem Pjanic.
The Daily Mail reports that Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas is interested in bringing the £20million-rated 23-year-old to White Hart Lane, having scouted the player extensively last season.
Villas-Boas isn’t the only manager keen on Pjanic however, with Arsenal chief Arsene Wenger linked with a move to bring the player to the Emirates Stadium in the past.
Barcelona boss Tito Vilanova has also been linked with a move, with Pjanic confirming the La Liga giants have enquired about his availability.
“It’s true, Barcelona are tracking me and enquired about my situation with my club,” he said earlier this year when questioned on the pursuit from the Nou Camp.
Pjanic, a 40-cap Bosnian international, began his professional career with Metz before moving to Lyon in 2008. After three years at the Stade de Gerland, he then moved to his current home in Serie ‘A’.
Tottenham Hotspur are eager to make his new home the Premier League however, and look likely to bolster their midfield with the addition of Paulinho later today.
The arrival of Pjanic would offer even more options to AVB, as Spurs look to build a side capable of challenging for a top four place at White Hart Lane.
