Juventus are keeping close tabs on Liverpool winger target Marko Pjaca, according to a report.
Italian publication Gazzetta dello Sport claim the Italian champions are in the driving seat to sign the Dinamo Zagreb star after he impressed at Euro 2016 for Croatia.
Juventus are willing to pay £14.3million to lure Pjaca to Italy and a bid is expected imminently.
Liverpool have been linked with a move for the 21-year-old but face strong competition from Serie A trio Juve, AC Milan and Inter Milan.
It is said that Manchester City, Real Madrid, Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain are also interested in the 21-year-old.
The Croatia international had an impressive Euro 2016 campaign, which ended when they were knocked out by Portugal last weekend.
The youngster scored 12 goals and notched six assists in all competitions in 2015-16 as he helped guide Zargreb to top-spot in the Croatian first division.
Pjaca is contracted to Zagreb until June 2019 but could be tempted by a move to the Premier League this summer.
Liverpool have developed a fluid attacking style under Jurgen Klopp and Pjaca’s ability to play anywhere across the front-line could make him the perfect addition.
The Merseysiders are in the market for an attacking midfielder who can provide the goal threat often absent from the team in the last two seasons.
