Chelsea & Tottenham face La Liga competition for playmaker target

Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur now have some serious competition if they want to sign Roma’s Miralem Pjanic – he has revealed Barcelona have been watching him.
Both the clubs from Stamford Bridge and White Hart Lane have been credited with an interest in the 22-year-old but they may find it difficult to convince him of a move to the Premier league if the Catalan club are interested.
Pjanic has been impressing this season under Roma manager Zdenek Zeman and it appears his form is not only attracting Chelsea and Spurs.
The Bosnia and Herzegovina international admitted Camp Nou scouts were keeping tabs on him and even revealed when they had specifically come to watch him.
“It’s true, Barcelona are tracking me and enquired about my situation with my club," he is quoted as saying in a report.
"They were watching me during the game with Fiorentina. It is Roma who have to decide, as the clubs deal with these matters.”
If Chelsea and Tottenham want to retain an interest in the playmaker, his later comments may be a touch disheartening as he describes the prospect of playing for Barcelona with much affection.
“Barcelona are a team everyone would like to play for and it is an honour that they are interested in me,” he added.
Pjanic started his professional career in France with Metz before switching to Lyon and moved to Serie A with AS Roma in 2008.
