Tottenham Hotspur have made an approach to sign Miralem Pjanic from Barcelona this summer.
According to reports from Catalan media outlet Sport, Spurs have made a loan approach to sign the 31-year-old midfielder.
Pjanic is one of the several fringe players Barcelona are trying to offload this summer.
A host of Serie A clubs have shown interest in signing him, including Juventus, Inter Milan and AC Milan.
Pjanic joined Barcelona in 2020 from Juventus and has made 30 appearances in all competitions for the Catalan giants last season.
In case, he needs to move to Italy, he prefers to return to his former club where he won four league titles.
Spurs are looking to bolster their midfield this summer, with the futures of Harry Winks and Moussa Sissoko uncertain.
Fabio Paratici, who previously signed Pjanic for Juventus from AS Roma, now wants to bring the Bosnian to the Premier League.
Spurs have made a loan approach for the 100-times capped Bosnian international.
Barcelona are looking to offload him in a matter of days, and the north London club feels they have a chance here.
A few years back, Pjanic was widely considered as one of the best midfielders in Europe, but signing him now, even on loan, could be a big gamble.
There’s no guarantee that he will rediscover his form, while his inclusion could block the progress of Oliver Skipp, who was sensational last season at Norwich City on loan.
Spurs have appointed Nuno Espirito Santo as their new manager this week, and it will be interesting to see whether he gives the green light to move for Pjanic.
