Chelsea transfer target set to have Barcelona medical today

Chelsea transfer target Miralem Pjanic is set to have his Barcelona medical today ahead of a move to the Spanish club.

The Juventus midfielder was reportedly offered to Chelsea as part of a deal for Chelsea midfielder Jorginho but it was believed he preferred a move to Barcelona.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard was reportedly interested in the midfielder but it seems the Blues were reluctant to push for a transfer after it was discovered he preferred a move to Barcelona.

Barcelona midfielder Arthur will join Juventus as part of the deal taking Pjanic plus €10 million to Barcelona.

Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano tweeted: “Arthur and Miralem Pjanic will have both medicals [today].

“Arthur will join Juventus, Pjanic will join Barça. Swap deal concluded, also €10M to Barcelona as part of the agreement – official soon. Here we go confirmed.”
