Tottenham Hotspur set for £15m Bosnian midfielder battle

Tottenham Hotspur face competition from Inter Milan in the race to sign highly-rated Roma midfielder Miralem Pjanic, according to reports.

TalkSPORT cite Italian sources when claiming that Andrea Stramacioni is ready to ‘revive’ the interest of the San Siro outfit in the player, having tracked Pjanic since 2008.

However, the Serie ‘A’ giants face strong competition from a number of clubs in both England and Spain, according to the report, with Tottenham Hotspur one of the Premier League sides keen on the 22-year-old Bosnia & Herzegovina international.

Andre Villas-Boas was linked with a move for the player in the summer transfer window, with Spurs eyeing the former Lyon star as a potential replacement for Luka Modric after the Croatian playmaker left White Hart Lane for Real Madrid.

A move never came to fruition though, leaving Pjanic out of favour and regularly out of action at the Stadio Olimpico. This season, he’s started just three league matches for the Giallorossi.

Pjanic is ‘receptive’ to the idea of a move away from his current club, according to the report, whilst talkSPORT suggested last week that a £15 million Spurs bid would be enough to land the player.

Whether this fresh interest from Italy will change Roma’s thinking is yet to be seen, but Tottenham Hotspur will be hoping that a move abroad rather than to a domestic rival sits well with last season’s seventh-placed side in Italy.
