Just days after Karim Benzema’s agent told the world his client will not be joining Arsenal, reports out of Italy have it that Arsenal are close to signing another striker/midfielder this time AS Roma’s Miralem Pjanic. Miralem Pjanic Was pretty close to joining Arsenal couple of seasons ago before moving to AS Roma and if the reports are true, Arsenal will finally be getting their long term target.
The player is wanted across Europe but according to Corriere dello Sports he has chosen the Arsenal option due to the Wenger’s long term interest and the fact that Arsenal are in the champions league.
The good thing is that he will not be overly expensive as AS Roma are looking to reduce their wage bill and as such the player will be available to whoever wants him at a low cost price.
According to reports, Roma’s sporting director, Walter Sabatini, has flown to England last week to negotiate with both Arsenal and Tottenham with the hope of selling the player to either club. Pjanic can be signed for as low as 15 million pounds.
Watch below the goals and skills of Miralem Pjanic.
