Arsenal have reportedly reignited their pursuit of Juventus midfielder Miralem Pjanic as Arsene Wenger aims to bolster the Gunners’ midfield.
Miralem Pjanic is rated very highly in Europe. The player impressed during his time at AS Roma to earn a transfer to Juventus in the summer of 2016. And, the player carried on in Turin from where he left off in Rome, impressing everyone with his skills and calm presence in the middle of the park.
Arsenal are ready to reignite interest in Juventus midfielder Miralem Pjanic. The Gunners are looking to bolster their midfield and Arsene Wenger seems to have locked down Pjanic as the value addition needed to lift the club’s midfield.
The 27-year-old managed 47 appearances in total for the Serie A champions, with 8 goals and 15 assists to his name. His presence in the midfield was immense as Juventus conquered Italy again and came close to becoming the European champions, before losing to Real Madrid in the final.
According to the report, Juventus are not looking to sell the player, but may be swayed by a bid of €40 million or more. Pjanic will add his winning mentality and experience to the squad at Emirates, something which Wenger needs in abundance in order to break the squad’s current mental barrier.
€40 million in today’s market for a 27-year-old international with 4 years left on his contract seems fair value and Arsenal may just test the Turin outfit’s resolve with a bid around the aforementioned mark. It would, however, be interesting to see if the prospect of a switch to Arsenal will interest the Bosnian.
