Genoa ask Juve for Pjaca

Genoa have asked Juventus for Marko Pjaca, who is currently struggling for playing time on loan at Fiorentina.

According to Sky Sport Italia, the proposal was put forward during today’s negotiations over a series of transfer deals.

Stefano Sturaro is on his way to Genoa on loan with €8m option to buy at the end of the season.

In turn, the Bianconeri are working to lock down defender Cristian Romero for the 2020-21 campaign.

During those talks, Genoa suggested bringing in Croatia international Pjaca, who can play in a variety of attacking roles.

With Krzysztof Piatek on the verge of a €40m transfer to Milan, Christian Kouame would move into the centre-forward role, leaving Pjaca on the wing.

The 23-year-old has struggled for playing time at Fiorentina, managing one goal and one assist in 16 Serie A appearances.

The Viola paid €2m for the season-long loan with option to buy for a further €20m.
