Chelsea have already signed Italian midfielder Jorginho from Serie A and now reports in Italy suggest that they want to sign another midfielder.
According to a report covered today by La Gazzetta Dello Sport, Chelsea, Man City and Barcelona want to hire the services of Bosnian international and Juventus star Miralem Pjanic, whose signing can be secured for a fee over €80million.
The Italian source have mentioned that the Blues are also interested in capturing the likes of Rugani and Higauin from Juve.
It seems that the arrival of Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo will change a lot of things in Turin. The Italian champions have paid a huge fee and agreed a mammoth contract to lure the 33-year-old star from Real Madrid and now they will have to balance the books.
Pjanic is one of the best and the most complete midfielders in the world. The 28-year-old star is at the peak of his game at the moment and last season, he was brilliant in the title winning campaign.
In all competitions, the former Roma midfielder featured in 44 games for The Old Lady and directly contributed in 21 goals (7 goals and 14 assists). He has the ability to maneuver the ball with both feet and is fantastic from the set piece situations as well.
As far as Chelsea’s midfield is concerned, Jorginho should start in the defensive midfield role and Kante in the central midfield role. If Pjanic arrives, we expect him to replace Fabregas and start as the most advanced midfielder in the team.
In your opinion, should Sarri splash the cash to sign Pjanic?
