Both Roma and Paris Saint-Germain are preparing for a colossal exchange that could see Miralem Pjanic leave and the Giallorossi acquire two of the Ligue 1 champions’ players.

PSG have been long admirers of the Bosnian playmaker, with President Nasser Al-Khelaifi having confessed a coy interest in the 25-year-old back in January.

“Pjanic is a great player who is most big clubs are keeping an eye on,” the PSG patron said, “although I doubt that Roma are willing to let him go at this time.”

In a potential transaction that could cost around €50 million, Roma could release Pjanic in order to secure the services of Lucas Digne and long-term target Adrien Rabiot.

The left-back arrived at the Stadio Olimpico on loan and with an option to buy worth €16m and with the PSG midfielder valued at around €15m to €18m, both could be used as makeweights plus an additional €15m in cash in order to reach a compromise over the Bosnian’s sale.

Pjanic has scored 11 goals and made 10 assists in all competitions this season, as well as being linked to a number of European giants, including Real Madrid and Chelsea.
