Barcelona and Tottenham Hotspur have been dealt a blow in their ongoing pursuit of Miralem Pjanic, with the midfielder set to re-open negotiations over a new contract with AS Roma, reports talkSPORT.

The 23-year-old Bosnia international has been heavily linked with a move away from Stadio Olimpico, despite the fact he remains under contract with the Serie 'A' club until 2015.

Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas has been credited with an interest in bringing Pjanic to White Hart Lane, and was said to be readying an offer when the transfer window reopens in January.

Gerardo Martino has also been monitoring the player's situation in Italy, as he too weighs up a bid to lure him to Camp Nou in the New Year.

However, Tottenham and Barcelona's hopes of sealing Pjanic's signature have suffered a setback, with Roma manager Rudi Garcia hopeful of securing him to a three-year extension.

Pjanic is ready to listen to the club's offer, and an announcement could be made before 2014.
