Miralem Pjanic insists he is happy at Roma and will not leave, even though he is “aware of Tottenham’s interest.”
The midfielder has repeatedly been linked with a January transfer to White Hart Lane, especially after a row with Coach Zdenek Zeman.
“The start of the season has been complicated by the injury and the new style of football the team is adopting, which is more direct and less constructed,” Pjanic told L’Essentiel.
“I have faith in my capabilities and the club has been close to me during this difficult period.
“I am aware of Tottenham’s interest, but I have no intention of leaving Roma. The club was clear, I have a three-year contract and without doubt will remain here.
“Our problem in Serie A is that we are dropping points, but are perfectly capable of competing for the top three positions.”
