BY foxsports • June 13, 2016

AS Roma midfielder Miralem Pjanic is undergoing a medical at Juventus with a view to completing a move to the Italian champions, the Turin-based club announced on Monday morning.

The Bosnia international is under contract with Roma until June 2018 but has a clause in his contract which allows him to leave Roma this summer provided a fee of 38 million Euros is paid for his release.

"Miralem Pjanic undergoes a medical ahead of his proposed move from Roma," Juventus said in a statement and have also posted pictures of the player arriving at the J Medical centre on their official Twitter account. 

Their first post said: "Good morning everyone and good morning Miralem Pjanic," with a winking icon and picture of the midfielder with his thumbs up, and added a short video not long after.

The 26-year-old - who arrived in Turin on Sunday - began his career in France with Metz, before a three-year spell at Lyon.

In 2011, he made the move to Serie A with Roma, and has made 159 appearances for the club with 27 goals cored, including 10 last season.

He also contributed 12 assists in 33 league appearances in the 2015/16 term to help Roma finish third in the league.
