Having already signed Marko Grujic from Red Star Belgrade, looking at Piotr Zielinski for his midfield and targeting Ante Coric from Dinamo Zagreb, it seems Jürgen Klopp is fully focusing on Eastern European youngsters for his transfer window this summer.
Another to add to that list appears to be Ante Coric’s teammate at Zagreb, Marko Pjaca, who keeps being linked with the Premier League club by the Italian media.
Gazzetta dello Sport on Wednesday have a big article on the 21-year-old winger, mostly about Juventus’ interest in his services, but, again, mention Klopp’s club as competition for Max Allegri.
On Liverpool’s interest, the Italian newspaper state the player’s father believes a move to Italy would be far better for his son’s development, more specifically a move to Juventus.
AC Milan are also after Pjaca, and can probably argue they would be able to give him more game time than their Turin counterparts, but the player is said to want to join the champions, and is ready to play wherever for them.
Napoli are the only club to make an official move as of yet, having already made a reported €25m bid for the youngster, which pleases Zagreb but not the player’s entourage.
They’d prefer to wait for a proper offer from any of the other clubs mentioned above.
Time to see how much (if at all) Liverpool want the Croatian winger.
