Allegri believes Juventus man, Miralem Pjanic has what it takes to become one of the best deep-lying midfielders in the world.
The former Roma player joined Juventus for €38 million, after five years with the capital club, where he was mainly deployed as an attacking midfielder.
However, since joining Juve, the talented midfielder has been used in a deeper role by Allegri, who continues to look for an heir to Andrea Pirlo following his departure in 2015.
And Allegri believes that Pjanic will eventually become a world star in that position.
“He [Pjanic] seems like Hernanes, who last year had never played in front of the defence and now looks like a totally different player,” he told Sky Sport Italia.
“I think Pjanic will become one of the best in the world in that position.”
