Young player packed with potential but he needs all important game time.
Injury struck at the worst moment at Juve & he hasn’t been able to recover from it, purchases made that even more difficult for him.
Meanwhile, Goal reported Juve and Fiorentina reached an agreement for the Croatian attacker Marko Pjaca. The 23-year-old is expected to join La Viola on a paid loan worth €3m, with an option to buy at €22m this week. However, the Old Lady retain the right to buy Pjaca back for €26m.
Viola boss Stefano Pioli might have also confirmed the deal: "He has experience, he wasn’t at his best last season. Where there’s ability though we can improve everyone. And we’re waiting for what’s unofficial to become official."
Having arrived in Turin in 2016, Pjaca managed to feature in just 20 Juventus appearances since as well as enjoying a short 9-game loan spell at Schalke. A cruciate ligament problem prevented him from showing his best at Juve.
