Chelsea put on alert as transfer target remains coy on speculation

Juventus midfielder Miralem Pjanic has fueled speculation over his future in Italy after refusing to rule out a move away from Turin this summer.

The Bosnian midfielder has spent the last two years with The Old Lady, making 61 appearances for the club and contributing 10 goals for the team. He was a key figure last season as Juventus once again stormed to a domestic double.

According to Calciomercato though, the 28-year old playmaker failed to quell rumours linking him with a move during this transfer window and with Premier League giants Chelsea heavily linked to the player – as per The Daily Star – this story could develop in the coming weeks.

Chelsea have already signed Jorginho from Napoli this summer and the acquisition of another central midfielder would complete their team in the middle of the park alongside N’Golo Kante, as new boss Maurizio Sarri has historically favoured a 4-3-3 formation.

Pjanic has the technical ability and vision to fit into any team and would certainly provide a stronger link for the Blues between the defence and attack.

“I have nothing to say, there are many reports and rumours and the only thing that I want to do is train in the best way I can. The rest doesn’t depend on me” said the Bosnian, as Calciomercato reports.

Juventus secured the mega signing of Cristiano Ronaldo for £105 million this summer – according to Sky Sports – and any sale of Pjanic could go some way to helping balance the books for the club.
