Barcelona are looking to bring in Miralem Pjanic in case a move for Liverpool’s Phillipe Coutinho does not go through
Spanish club FC Barcelona have turned their attention towards the Bosnian Midfielder Miralem Pjanic in case if they fail to make progress in the deal for Philippe Coutinho. The Juventus star midfielder has been one of Europe’s top prospects in the middle of the park.
According to the Spanish outlet Don Balon, the Catalan Giants are looking at Pjanic after being left frustrated negotiating a deal for the Liverpool player.
The Reds have stood firm in their stance on not allowing the midfielder’s dream come true. The Brazilian midfielder, however, is eager to leave Liverpool and join Camp Nou.
Miralem Pjanic, a catalyst for Juventus
Barcelona, on the other hand, has moved on from their pursuit for Coutinho. They have approached the Italian club for the sale of Pjanic. Pjanic, who joined Juventus from Roma has been instrumental for the Turin based club in the Champions League.
The Bosnian midfielder has been in excellent form for the Old Lady and is one of their catalysts. It remains to see who the midfielder will replace at Camp Nou. Ivan Rakitic seems to be at risk if Pjanic walks through the door at Camp Nou. The 27-year-old midfielder is available for half the price that the club is willing to pay for the Brazilian midfielder.
Excellent vision and passing have been one of Pjanic’s trademark style, and it is exactly the profile that Barcelona have wanted in the transfer window. Reports suggest that the manager Ernesto Valverde has given the green light for the purchase of the midfielder.
This arguably will mean that either of Ivan Rakitic or Andre Gomes would be sold to accommodate the midfielder at Camp Nou.
Liverpool is highly unlikely to sell their star player to Barcelona, as they have told time and again. It is better for the Spanish club to move on to purchase the Bosnian midfielder to replace the likes of Ivan Rakitic at the centre of the park. The Juventus midfielder has all the potential to succeed and bring glory to Camp Nou. His nifty footwork and an eye for goal are the added advantages for the club.
