We’ve recently been linked with a £12m move for Croatian youngster Marko Pjaca, with Jurgen Klopp apparently very keen on the versatile forward (via Gazzetta dello Sport). Dinamo Zagreb have reportedly slapped a £14m price-tag on his head though, so if we want to land him then we’ll need to up our offer by £2m, according to talkSPORT.
The 21-year-old has played in a number of positions along the front line and in attacking midfield for Zagrab, showing that he’s got a real eye for goal and a bright future ahead of him. He earned a place in Croatia’s Euro 2016 squad, and his value has consequently shot up.
The report suggests we’re now facing competition from the likes of AC Milan and Juventus, with Zagreb clearly believing they can get a better deal for him now.
The Serie A sides have been monitoring his situation for a while, but now that Croatia have been eliminated by Portugal they are finally set to make their move. If Jurgen Klopp wants to land his signature this summer then he’ll need to move quickly, and potentially stump up the extra cash that Zagreb are asking.
While it’s unclear whether Pjaca will prove to be worth the expenditure, an extra £2m wouldn’t exactly break the bank. If he’s a player Klopp really does want to bring to the club then it doesn’t seem like there’s much standing in our way, but if Juventus start throwing their weight around then things could change.
