Manchester United are on a mission to snatch Roma starlet Miralem Pjanic, reports The Telegraph. The 23-year-old Pjanic has been in a superb run of form for the Italian giants, starting all nine games and scoring three goals as the undefeated capital club surged to the top of the Serie A. And that type of form has brought the Bosnia and Herzegovina international to the attention of David Moyes, with United scouts sent to watch him in action. And based on the reports sent back to Old Trafford, United are now preparing a January bid to lure the playmaker to England. However, United could be forced into paying more than 25 million pounds for the player after rumours emerged that Roma will offer Pjanic a new five-year contract to warn off any potential suitors.

Liverpool are interested in signing Ghanaian midfielder Daniel Amartey from Swedish club Djurgarden. According to the Mirror, Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has sent scouts to check on Amartey with reports suggesting the 18-year-old has impressed enough for the Anfield outfit to offer a bid around 1.5 million pounds when the transfer window reopens in January. Amartey has made 22 appearances for Djurgarden in the Allsvenskan with the club still in the fight for a place in Europe next season. And should the Reds get their man, it is expected the under-20 international will be immediately loaned back to Swedish outfit.

Finally, Blackpool could make a stunning loss if young star Tom Ince decides to further his career in Europe. According to the Daily Mail, Ince has been attracting the attention of some of Europe’s leading clubs, including Dutch giants Ajax and Serie A club Inter Milan. But Blackpool officials will be hoping the 21-year-old will shun a move abroad as the club could lose millions in transfer fees. Ince's contract expires next summer but the club will still be rewarded compensation if he moves to another English club. But here's the kicker -- if Ince moves across to the continent, Blackpool could lose their star asset for as little as 155,000 pounds.
