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 (Dh157.2m) is paid for his release.

The 26-year-old midfielder, who arrived in Turin on Sunday, joined Roma from Lyon in the summer of 2011.
He scored 10 goals and set up 12 more in 33 league appearances to help Roma finish third in Serie A this season.
