Transfer News: Chelsea eyeing loan deal for Miralem Pjanic

According to transfer news from Daily Mail, Chelsea are looking to bring in Miralem Pjanic on a loan deal. PSG are also looking at a similar deal for the Barcelona midfielder who has not enjoyed the best first season at the club.

The 31-year-old is a product of Metz’s youth academy. After a season with the French outfit’s senior set-up, he moved to Lyon. He stayed there for three years and established himself. The midfielder then moved to Roma before joining Juventus in the summer of 2016.

The Bosnian went on to become a world-class midfielder with the Italian champions, helping them win several trophies including three Serie A titles. He moved to Barcelona in a swap deal, with Arthur heading the other way. However, he has not enjoyed the same level of success there.

It has now been said that Barcelona are looking to cut their losses to Pjanic and have offered the Bosnian to a bevvy of clubs around Europe. Thomas Tuchel is said to be an admirer of the midfielder and supposedly wants a loan deal for him.

Pjanic is also considering his future at Barcelona but his wages are likely to be a huge issue. Nonetheless, Chelsea are willing to wait and sign him depending on how the situation goes. However, the interest looks quite puzzling in the sense that Chelsea have a few central midfielders already and bringing in a 31-year-old Pjanic hardly seems like a great idea.
