Liverpool continue to scour the transfer market for Fekir’s replacement after the deal was reportedly scuppered due to a complicated knee issue, one the English giants feared would be a big deal in the future.
Although, news making the rounds have claimed Liverpool may yet resurrect the collapsed deal with Lyon after the player begged his request be put through by the Ligue One side.
But all efforts to try and sign the French attacker again might be abrupted as the Reds are already plotting a 22 million pounds move for Juventus 23-year-old ace Marko Pjaca, per Gazzetta dello Sport via Footballfacts.
Klopp as identified the youngster as the man he’s chosen to replace Fekir at Anfield.
After making a big buy this summer in Cristiano Ronaldo, the Old Lady is expected to offload some players and Pjaca has been earmarked as part of that bandwagon.
The 23-year-old spent the second half of last term at Bundesliga outfit Schalke 04 and will be allowed to discuss freely with other European clubs as Juve looks to maintain an healthy account.
Pjaca has made a tallied 20 appearances for the Italian outfit since returning to the club in 2016.
Liverpool finished fourth last term in the Premier League, but managed to make it to the final of the 2017-18 Champions League in Kiev, Ukraine, where they lost dramatically 3-1 to Real Madrid.
