Liverpool have been offered the chance to sign Juventus winger Marko Pjaca for just £22 million and he could be a good alternative to Xherdan Shaqiri.
The 3-1 defeat to Real Madrid in the Champions League final in May made glaringly obvious a couple of flaws within Jürgen Klopp’s side.
While Loris Karius’ blunders in net have raised eyebrows, just as worrying was the lack of firepower on the bench. When Mohamed Salah went off injured, Adam Lallana was the man to be called to action but he is nowhere near the Egyptian in terms of talent and influence.
With this in mind, Klopp is targeting a multi-functional forward to help Liverpool win games late on when his star names are tiring.
Xherdan Shaqiri has been mentioned as a player that is very likely to land up at Anfield this summer but with some concerns over his defensive attitude and maverick mindset, fans have questioned the move.
One player who could prove to be an astute alternative is Juventus’ Marko Pjaca who has reportedly been offered to the Reds for a very good price. As per Gazzetta dello Sport, the Croatian could join Liverpool for just £22 million.
Despite only making nine appearances last season on loan with Schalke, scoring twice, the Juve man was still selected for Croatia’s World Cup squad but he is not expected to make an appearance against England on Wednesday.
Liverpool, who are actively searching for a multifunctional forward, have been offered Pjaca as Juventus are looking to cash in on the player.
Meanwhile, the Nabil Fekir fiasco continues as uncertainty reigns over whether or not he will get his move to Anfield before the close of the Premier League transfer window.
