Roma midfielder Miralem Pjanic has admitted Tottenham Hotspur are showing interest in his services.
The Bosnian is currently unhappy with his status at Stadio Olimpico, and his recent clash with boss Zdenek Zeman only added fuel to speculations linking him with a move away from the club.
Media reports suggested that Tottenham were preparing a January bid for the highly rated midfielder, with Pjanic now confirming he is aware of Spurs’ interest.
“I am aware of Tottenham’s interest, but I have no intention of leaving Roma,” Pjanic said to L’Essentiel, a daily newspaper in Luxembourg.
“The club was clear, I have a three-year contract and without doubt will remain here.”
The 22-year-old joined Roma in an €11 million move from Lyon in the summer of 2011 and immediately established himself as a first team regular at Olimpico.
However, his position at the club changed with the arrival of Zdenek Zeman, who has only been using him sparingly this season.
In total, Pjanic has scored 5 goals in 37 Serie A appearances for the Giallorossi.
