AS Roma Transfer News: Miralem Pjanic And Simon Kjaer Deals Done

AS Roma have been gracious enough to bring to us a player whose name sets off an infinite amount of puns: Miralem Pjanic. The 21 year old Bosnian midfielder has signed from French side Lyon. You gotta wonder if this will just make Luis Enrique pjanic even more about how to regularly include Francesco Totti in his side. Oh yes, this Serie A season is going to be a long one.

Meanwhile, in names that are less fun to pun, Danish defender Simon Kjaer arrives on loan from Wolfsburg, although he shouldn't feel too out of place with i lupi. References to wolves aside, the young center back was a first team regular at Palermo before moving to the Bundesliga last summer.

Finally, despite rumors pulled from thin air that Fernando Gago was set to join Palermo, it seems Roma are still negotiating personal terms with Real Madrid for the midfielder. Besides Totti, will there be anyone from last season's Roma squad left when this window slams shut?
