AS Roma Consider Possible Swap Deal Involving Miralem Pjanic

AS Roma are reportedly considering a possible swap deal with PSG which would see Miralem Pjanic move to France while Javier Pastore would return to Serie A.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the 23-year-old has been the subject of a €55m bid from the French giants, although the Giallorossi are understood to have rejected the offer.

However, the Parisians aren’t expected to give up in their pursuit of the Bosnian international, with Gazzetta suggesting that they could return and use Pastore as a bargaining chip in negotiations.

Pjanic has previously spent time playing in France with Lyon before making the switch to the Italian capital, where he has been an important part of Rudi Garcia’s plans in his first season in charge as they continue to harbour hopes of winning a Scudetto.

However, interest in his services doesn’t appear to be dropping despite Roma insisting that they do not wish to part company with him, with PSG likely to return in the summer.

The Giallorossi midfielder was spotted at the Parc des Princes for the game against Marseille recently, adding fuel to the fire over reports that he will move to Paris in the near future.

However, with conflicting reports suggesting that he is open to signing a new four-year extension, PSG are expected to test the resolve of the Italian giants by adding Pastore and €15m to the table.

The former Palermo star has failed to excel since his move to France, and it is reported that he would be open to returning to Italy to start a new challenge in Rome.

However, with PSG also chasing Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba, it remains to be seen whether or not a deal for Pjanic can be agreed and if they are satisfied with the terms of the latest offer.
