Roma are planning to use Manchester United target Miralem Pjanic to lure Manchester City star Edin Dzeko to the Stadio Olimpico, according to reports in Italy.

TuttoMercato claims to have strong sources suggesting that Roma are keen to play upon the fact that Pjanic and Dzeko are both Bosnian, in the hope that the latter will choose them so that he can be with a compatriot. The City striker has been linked with an exit from the Etihad this summer, following a season wherein he’s been forced to play second-fiddle to the dominant partnership of Sergio Aguero and Alvaro Negredo.

A host of other clubs have been named in connection with his signature but it would appear that Roma are confident Pjanic’s influence can convince Dzeko to choose them over other rivals. The notion would also deal a blow to United’s hopes of negotiating a deal for Pjanic for themselves, as Roma’s plan would infer that they fully intend to keep hold of the midfielder.

Reports in the past have speculated that Dzeko has long wanted Pjanic, valued at around €55million, to join him at City, which could offer an indication as to how he would feel about a reverse option promising the same result. With Roma currently looking as though they will be playing the Champions League this season, it’s conceivable that Dzeko could be lured into a move.
