Juventus FC have posted a small video and picture on social media outlet Twitter confirming the entry of Bosnia and Herzegovina international Miralem Pjanic into a medical facility. The 26-year-old Roma midfielder has been linked with multiple clubs but Juventus activated his release clause last week.

Pjanic looks to join Juventus as they continue their rebuilding work after winning yet another Serie A title. Manchester United, Chelsea, Manchester City and Bayern Munich were all linked with the former Lyon midfielder. 

Pjanic is a deep-lying playmaker who could operate across the midfield. He scored 14 goals and assisted a further 13 more in 44 appearances for Roma. His biggest strengths are through-balls and short passes and is capable of influencing games all on his own.

His inclusion in this season's squad could potentially signal the exit of high-profile superstar Paul Pogba. The 23-year-old Frenchman has been excellent for the Serie A club winning for Scudettos on the trot but has since been linked with the likes of Real Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester City and former club Manchester United.

Juventus have either looked to sign Pjanic as the Frenchman's replacement or are preparing incredibly well to put in a proper UEFA Champions League, Serie A and domestic cup title. Pjanic could the first signing of the summer as they're also linked with multiple striking options as well as central defenders – including the likes of Bayern Munich's Medhi Benatia. 

With the medical already announced, except an early announcement by Juventus. He's reportedly signing a 4-year contract with the Turin club.
