Juventus, Napoli and Milan are all after Dinamo Zagreb's Marko Pjaca as a bidding war could kick off.
The negotiations for the purchase of the talented Croatian winger-striker, one of the revelations of Euro 2016, could easily turn into one of this summer's prolonged transfer stories.
The Partenopei currently have an advantage in that their €35m offer, inclusive of the signing of Pjaca's teammate Marko Rog, is far more remunerative than the Bianconeri's €15-17m for the 21-year-old alone.
But although Napoli have the favour of Dinamo Zagreb, they do not enjoy that of the player, who is believed by the Gazzetta dello Sport and Sky Sport alike to prefer Juventus as a destination.
To further complicate matters, Sportske Novotsi recently reported that Milan's joint-CEO Adriano Galliani was spotted in Zagreb, presumably to discuss Pjaca.
The Rossoneri are currently busy with the matter of the club's sale, but could have tremendous capital to invest in just over a week's time.
The Croatian club are hoping that a bidding war may kick off between the three Serie A clubs, an option which Juventus would not welcome and which may force them out of the race.
In any case Pjaca's future is far from resolved and negotiations could just as easily be closed in the next three days as they could go on until the last day of the market.
