Juventus midfielder Miralem Pjanic has opened up on attempts by Tottenham and Arsenal to sign him in the past.
The Bosnian who is nicknamed “the Pianist” because of his ability to dictate play in midfield has been preparing to face Tottenham with his teammates in their Champions League round of 16 game this week, but he could have been playing with the north Londoners instead.
Pjanic came through the ranks at French side, Lyon and it was when he was playing for the Ligue 1 side that he was approached by Arsene Wenger to move to the Premier League. But he was still very young there and decided to continue his development there.
In the year 2012 while he was playing for AS Roma, Tottenham came calling, but he told the Lilywhites that he was happy in the Italian capital. He went on to join the Old Ladies and has been pivotal to their domestic dominance and their run up to two Champions League finals in the last three seasons.
He and his teammates would be looking to take out Tottenham in this game as they look to reach the Champions League final this year again, they are also still very much in the race for the Italian Scudetto and the Coppa Italia.
