Liverpool transfer news: Reds handed boost in race to sign Marko Pjaca as Fiorentina decide against permanent move

15 Nov

Liverpool target Marko Pjaca could be back on the market this summer, according to reports in Italy.

The Merseyside club were vying to land the talented Croatia international from Juventus during the summer, but they lost out to Fiorentina.

Fiorentina appear to have decided against signing Pjaca permanently

The Serie A club paid £1.75m to sign the 23-year-old on a season-long loan in a deal which also included an option to buy him outright.

However, according to Calciomercato, Fiorentina have now decided not to take up that option and the winger will return to Juventus in the summer.

But with little room in the first-team squad in Turin, it is likely that Juve will be looking him to shift him quickly so he could be available for a knockdown price.

And that could tempt Liverpool into reigniting their long-standing interest in Pjaca to seal a summer swoop.

Croatia international Pjaca has made 11 appearances for Fiorentina during his loan spell, scoring one goal for La Viola in a 3-0 defeat of SPAL.
