European club accept star man is leaving: Midfielder was in London to discuss Chelsea move

Roma are likely to accept a fee of over £30m for the 26-year-old, given that they are now willing to do a deal.

The Italians have battled up until now to keep hold of their Bosnia international, who has been at the club since arriving from Lyon in 2011.

Pjanic has been in fine form in Serie A this term, having netted nine goal in 28 appearances while also contributing with 10 assists.

But the five-year spell is set to end, with Roma aware Pjanic wants to move on at the end of the campaign.
