Valencia keen on Pjaca move

Valencia are eyeing a summer move for Juventus winger and Croatian international Marko Pjaca, according to reports in the Spanish press.

The 22-year-old signed a five-year contract at the Italian champions following a €23m move from Dinamo Zagreb in 2016 and joined Schalke on loan in January.

The Croat made 20 appearances for the Old Lady in his debut season but a serious knee injury saw him fall out of first-team contention in Turin.

Superdeporte now report Valencia, whose new technical director Pablo Longoria used to be Juve’s chief scout, have been monitoring the winger’s progress in the Bundesliga.

Pjaca has netted two goals for Schalke in six appearances with Los Che keen on making a summer move.
