The player has also been linked with a return to Serie A with AS Roma, which has the option to offer him a deal in 2018-19.

Pjanic’s agent is believed to have made contact with Roma’s directors and president and they have now reached an agreement to give him a new contract, according to Sky Sport Italia.

Pjanić has been in fine form this season, scoring 14 goals in 20 games for the Rossoneri.

The Croatia international, who has been a mainstay in the Roma squad since the start of the season, scored a hat-trick against Sampdoria on Thursday.
