Liverpool could end up recruiting Juventus attacker Marko Pjaca for a £22m fee, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, as reported by talkSPORT.
Even though Jurgen Klopp is not in desperate need of fresh attacking talent, it seems that the Merseyside outfit are on the lookout for someone who can bolster that end of the pitch.
talkSPORT cites Gazzetta dello Sport as saying that Juventus are willing to sell Pjaca to Liverpool for around £22m.

The 23-year-old, who is valued at £13.5m by Transfermarkt, predominantly plays on the left wing, but can also contribute on the right or up front on his own.
Pjaca has been a Juve player since 2016, but has struggled to break into the first team.
During the 2017-18 campaign, the Croatia international spent it on loan at Schalke.

The attacker is part of the squad that will take on England in the semi-finals of the World Cup on Wednesday, but during the tournament he has made just two appearances, totalling 74 minutes.
At Schalke, Pjaca struggled to make an impression as he started just three matches and came off the bench in a further four.
Having said that, the attacker did score twice during that short period of time, which is not the worst record.
For Liverpool, though, if they want to bring in someone to support Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane, they require an established star.
Pjaca could potentially be a positive squad player, but at £22m, it does not make much sense.
