Analyse position

This game started out as GQA and progressed to this position now. Is this not the Meran? Black is looking for queenside play and most likely will push f4 to chase the bishop back to d3. I think what is lacking here is the white bishop on b5 to complete the Meran.

Any ideas on how to tyranspose this to the Meran? White to play.
