Spanish football expert, Euan McTear, has claimed that a move to Tottenham Hotspur might be the right fit for Barcelona midfielder Miralem Pjanic.
Pjanic has not had the expected impact since moving to the Camp Nou 12 months ago, with the midfielder failing to register a single goal or assist for Ronald Koeman’s side last campaign.
Reports from Spain have claimed that Fabio Paratici has approached Barcelona about signing the midfielder on a loan deal.
Some sources have suggested that the Bosnian is keen to leave the Catalan giants and that his agent is trying hard to facilitate a transfer.
Tottenham’s London rivals, Arsenal and Chelsea have also been credited with an interest in the 31-year-old.
It remains to be seen whether Paratici will be able to reunite with the experienced midfielder who he worked at Juventus, but McTear believes that the move could work for all parties concerned.
The journalist opined that Pjanic could suit the style of play Nuno Espirito Santo is looking to implement at the North London club.
He told ThisIsFutbol: “He’s (Pjanic) another one of those players that they’re looking to move on. He’s been offered the chance to leave, and he’s turned that down apparently.
“He’s probably going to have to move on. If he does agree to that, Tottenham does seem a good fit.
“It’s hard to know what Nuno’s project is going to be like, but Pjanic is one of those veteran players that could probably suit Spurs well, so if he does move, then Tottenham is a good fit.”

There are very few downsides to signing a player of Pjanic’s experience and quality on loan.
Paratici would certainly know well of the midfielder’s qualities and if the Italian is keen on adding another central midfielder to the squad as some reports suggest, it comes as no surprise that he is tracking the Bosnian’s situation.
Barcelona’s need to reduce their wage bill and that might just work to Tottenham’s advantage.
