According to FCInterNews, Dinamo Zagreb sporting director Marko Vukelic has claimed that Marko Pjaca looks destined for the Premier League.

The 21-year-old winger has become hot property this summer after a series of impressive performances for Croatia at Euro 2016.

There are several clubs in Europe chasing his signature, with the likes of AC Milan and Juventus allegedly battling for him in Italy and Liverpool also said to be keen on a move.

Indeed, the Reds have already seen a £12.2 million bid rejected for the youngster, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, as they attempted to steal a march on their rivals.

Yesterday saw suggestions from Tuttosport that he was bound for a move to Serie A, but Vukelic’s latest comments seem to suggest otherwise.

"The boy has been very clear through his Facebook profile that there has been no agreement with Inter and he is still a player for Dynamo Zagreb," he told FCInterNews.

"I don’t want to respond to this question directly but what I will say is that his future looks to be in the Premier League and clubs over there are in pole-position to sign him."

It now remains to be seen where Pjaca will end up, with this transfer saga having already taken several twists and turns.

Liverpool would clearly be the smart move so he could work under Jurgen Klopp, but the offer of Champions League football at Juventus should also not be discounted.

They also have a strong record of bringing through young talent in recent years, with the likes of Paul Pogba and Paulo Dybala starring for the side at present.
