AS Roma midfielder Miralem Pjanic is ready to quit the club in order to face a new challenge in his footballing career, according to Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport.

The Bosnian international has been at the Serie A outfit since 2011 after moving from French side Lyon, but reportedly feels now is the perfect time to move on and start a new chapter in his career.

The 24-year-old has made over 100 league appearances for Rudi Garcia's men and is a vital part of the midfielder in Rome, but with looming interest from the Premier League, it's believed his head has been turned elsewhere and he is now ready to leave the club.

Gerrard Replacement?

According to numerous reports, Liverpool are the main side interested in signing Pjanic as they look to find a suitable Steven Gerrard replacement.

The club legend is leaving Anfield at the end of the season in order to join MLS side LA Galaxy, and Brendan Rodgers has already began the hunt for a new central-midfielder.

As well as Gerrard leaving, there are numerous fears regarding Jordan Henderson's future as he continues to stall on signing a new deal at the club. Despite being the club's vice-captain and heavily expected to be the new long-term captain, the Englishman is yet to commit to the Merseyside club.

Pjanic's future looks uncertain

With Pjanic top of Rodgers' list, Roma are heavily expecting the Bosnian to leave the club despite him being tied under contract until 2018.

The Serie A side paid just over £8million for the midfielder four years ago and would reportedly want at least double that to see him leave the club.

It was reported in January that Liverpool made an approach for Pjanic, but nothing formal came of the reports as Rodgers decided to wait until the end of the season instead.

Several reports are suggesting that Pjanic is ready to quit Roma and with several clubs interested across Europe, it's expected that the Serie A side will be looking for a new midfielder at the end of the season.
