There are reports that Marko Pjaca could be included in the deal to send Emre Can to Juventus. The German is eyeing a bumper new contract and using his expiring deal at Anfield as leverage in negotiations with the Reds. Yet an agreement has still to be reached, with the Old Lady strongly linked to the Bayern Munich product for some time should he opt to leave on a free transfer next summer. The Italian champions can officially approach the 23-year-old next month regarding a pre-contract agreement.
Given their weak negotiating position, the Reds’ best option could be to take a player back in return, with Croatian winger Pjaca likely to offer excellent cover out wide for Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.
