Chelsea have joined the race with Inter Milan as both clubs are interested in making a move for Miralem Pjanic who is set to leave Barcelona, MySportPlug reports.
The Blues are looking to add more quality and experience, with Thomas Tuchel almost guaranteed of getting a long term deal next season which could see him spend more time going forward.
Chelsea and Inter Milan will be going head to head for a chance to sign Barcelona midfielder Miralem Pjanic on loan or a permanent move to either team.
The midfielder have find it difficult in getting much playing time under Ronald Koeman who preferred to start other players aside the Bosnian International who is more experience.
Champions League finalists Chelsea and Serie A winners Inter Milan have now made enquiries as to the future of Miralem Pjanic with Barcelona ahead of a possible move.
The Bosnian international has found playing time hard to come by under Ronald Koeman who is also under lots of pressure to get things going with the team.
The Dutchman has preferred to start other players often younger options in the centre of the pitch which sometimes have failed to work out with them losing some crucial games this season.
The report states that all options which could include a loan or permanent switch that will be considered by the 31-year-old who is desperate to make a move elsewhere when the summer window open.
Since making the move from Juventus to Spain, he has struggled to get regular playing time which he got time over time with during his spell with the Italian giant.
Chelsea will be looking to bring in Miralem Pjanic as backup to NGolo Kante and Jorginho who seems to be playing more often since the injury to Mateo Kovacic who also plays same position.
Thomas Tuchel is currently doing so much more than expected for his side who are on course to win a double this season as they have FA cup and Champions League final.
