Lokomotiv Moscow are also now keeping an eye on the 23-year-old but talkSPORT claim the talented midfielder – who has a £17m buy-out clause – is unlikely to pursue a move to the Russian outfit as they will be unable to offer him the Champions League football he craves.

Interest mounts in £20m Pjanic

Pjanic has emerged as one of Europe’s hottest talents since joining the Serie A outfit from Lyon in 2011, with the 23-year-old attacking midfielder scoring 7 goals and providing 17 assists in his 58 appearances for the Italians so far.
