A surprise little package during these Euros, Croatia’s Marko Pjaca always looked lively when coming off the bench for his country, and this has caused a few clubs to be linked with him.
Already a strong performer for his club, Dinamo Zagreb, the 21-year-old, who scored 12 goals and assisted his teammates six times in 42 appearances last season, looks set for a move to the Serie A.
At least, that’s what Gazzetta dello Sport are trying to push on Monday, with Juventus the latest club from Italy to join the race for the talented winger.
Inter Milan were the favourites for a long time, but their league rivals have suddenly popped up and are prepared to throw the kitchen sink at the player to sign him.
That is, of course, if they do not face anymore competition from clubs outside of Italy, with Liverpool and Dortmund also reported as keeping an eye on the player.
Dortmund have signed quite a few young and talented forwards this summer already, and an extra one would seem out of place, while Liverpool are still considering dealing with Napoli for Polish midfielder Piotr Zielinski at this current time.
What’s interesting in all of this is both the English and the Italian press’ take on where the player seems to want to go.
Zagreb’s sporting director told FC InterNews that Premier League clubs were in the lead for his club’s player, with the English press taking this as the player favouring a move there, while Gazzetta seem pretty confident the youngster would prefer a move to Italy.
One thing seems certain, and that is that Marko Pjaca looks very unlikely to be a Dinamo Zagreb player next season.
Where to next, though?
