Juventus midfielder Miralem Pjanic has reportedly held talks with his new agent over sealing a summer transfer move to Chelsea.
The Bosnian playmaker is one of the finest creative midfielders in Europe and has been linked with the Blues at various points this summer.
There’s no doubt Chelsea could do with a player of his calibre in that area of the pitch following a string of unsuccessful signings in the middle of the park last summer.
Having sold Nemanja Matic to rivals Manchester United, Chelsea then brought in Danny Drinkwater, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Ross Barkley, none of whom have impressed.
Pjanic would surely be a major upgrade, and the Metro cite unspecified reports in Italy as claiming he’s discussed the possibility of moving to Stamford Bridge with his representative, who has links with Maurizio Sarri.
The 28-year-old seems ideal to line up alongside new CFC signing Jorginho in Sarri’s side, with the Italian tactician known for his preference for stylish football based around a strong passing game.
There are few better suited to that style of football than Pjanic, and Sarri will undoubtedly know him well from his time managing in Serie A.
