Tottenham to rival Real Madrid for £15m playmaker

Tottenham could be set to rekindle their interest in Roma playmaker Miralem Pjanic, after it emerged the Italian club want to sell him, reports talkSPORT.

The 22-year-old Bosnia and Herzegovina international was linked with a move to the Premier League club in the summer, as a potential replacement for Luka Modric, who left north London for Real Madrid.

Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas is yet to bring in a like-for-like replacement, and after missing out on Joao Moutinho on transfer deadline day, could renew his attempt to bring Pjanic to White Hart Lane when the transfer window reopens in January.

Roma were unwilling to sell the former Lyon star in August, but after his struggles to command a regular place in the first-team this campaign - starting just two of the club's eight Serie A games - they are now open to negotiations.

With a valuation of around £15million, Pjanic will be in Tottenham's price-range, having paid a similar amount to sign Mousa Dembele from Fulham, but Villas-Boas could face competition from Real Madrid, who are also believed to be monitoring the situation.

Pjanic would not be guaranteed regular action at the Bernabeu either, though, so a move to England would perhaps be the better option for him at this stage of his career.
