Liverpool plotting £22m bid for 23-year-old World Cup 2018 forward

Juventus have reportedly told Liverpool that it will take a bid of at least £22m to sign Marko Pjaca this summer.

The Reds are understood to be in the market for another attacking player after their move for Nabil Fekir broke down earlier this summer, with Jurgen Klopp identifying Pjaca as a possible target.

The 23-year-old spent the second half of last season on loan at Schalke 04 and is free to leave the club as Juventus look to raise funds for a summer overhaul.

The Italian champions are hopeful of signing Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid for £88m, and have also been linked with a £130m move for Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.

Gazzetta dello Sport reports that they have quoted Liverpool £22m for Pjaca, who is currently with Croatia at the World Cup, where his country have reached the semi-finals.

Pjaca joined Juventus in 2016 but has only made 20 appearances for the first team.
