Ac Milan have moved ahead of Liverpool in the race for Marko Pjaca by agreeing a fee of £25million with Dinamo Zagreb, according to a report.
Italian sport website Sport Mediaset claim that Milan have stolen a march on the Reds by agreeing a fee for the Croatia international.
It is understood that the Italian side are now set for talks with Pjaca, but they are hopeful a deal can be tied up without anyone making a counter offer.
As well as Liverpool, Borussia Dortmund and Juventus have expressed an interest in the Croatian.
As reported on Football Insider, the Reds were eyeing a move for the 21-year-old winger, but it now looks likely that the Anfield club will miss out on the young speedster this summer.
The winger proved to be one of the breakout stars from Euro 2016, as he helped Croatia reach the last-16.
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.
The Merseysiders remain in the market for an attacking midfielder, who can provide the goal threat often absent from the team in the last two seasons and they have lately been linked with Newcastle’s Moussa Sissoko.
