Incoming boss Antonio Conte wants Miralem Pjanic at Chelsea for upcoming season.


However, Roma sporting director Walter Sabatini has spoken at Football Italia stating that the Bosnia-Herzegovina International will not move from Rome unless that clubs does not pay release clause of €38m.

He said: “We mustn’t do anything, we can’t even answer the phone because it’s a deal we don’t want to do. Pjanic might go but only if someone pays the clause.

“It’s something that concerns us daily, but it doesn’t affect our behaviour. We’re doing nothing, we’re a passive witness.

“I haven’t spoken with him. He talked to the Coach Luciano Spalletti and he reaffirmed his desire to stay at Roma.

“I don’t have to talk to the player, he’s not for sale. If someone wants him they’ll have to pay the clause.”

Chelsea youngster Dominic Solanke made his England U21 debut as the Three Lions drew 0-0 with Bosnia-Herzegovina in their Euro 2017 qualifier.

The 18-year old partnered Arsenal’s Chuba Akpom upfront, as fellow Chelsea players Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Nathaniel Chalobah and Lewis Baker also started in midfield in Sarajevo.

Baker, who is on loan with Solanke at Dutch side Vitesse Arnhem, fired one of the few chances of the game wide of the post and was replaced with 20 minutes to go by Sunderland’s Duncan Watmore. Loftus-Cheek and Solanke were both replaced in the dying stages, with Chalobah playing a full game.

Ola Aina, who was promoted to the U21 squad from the U20’s earlier this week, was an unused substitute and John Swift, another late addition to the group, wasn’t involved. Gareth Southgate’s side currently top their group.

At U19 level, Tammy Abraham scored an equaliser two minutes from time as England came back from two goals down in a friendly away in the Netherlands, having come on in the 70th minute. Izzy Brown played the whole game.
