Last week, Liverpool were linked with a move for Dinamo Zagreb winger Marco Pjaca, who was a part of the Croatian national team in the European Championships.

However, the 21-year-old, who has reportedly garnered the summer attention AC Milan and Fiorentina, along with the Reds, was then said to be nearing a deal with Inter Milan.

Now, though, Zagreb sporting director Marko Vukelic is insisting that the race to sign Pjaca remains wide open.

"The boy has been very clear through his Facebook profile that there has been no agreement with Inter and he is still a player for Dynamo Zagreb," Vukelic told FCInterNews. "He's now on vacation. Then, he will be at our disposal, but there are a few possibilities with other clubs including Inter."

Of more interest to Liverpool fans, he hinted that a move to England for the tall, skilled playmaker could be forthcoming.

"What I will say is that his future looks to be in the Premier League and clubs over there are in pole position to sign him," Vukelic said.

This weird under-the-radar saga is unlikely to end in a move to Anfield, but it's worth noting that the only Premier League side Pjaca has been consistently linked with is Liverpool. So even though this just sounds like a club official aiming to start a bidding war, perhaps Jürgen Klopp has some genuine interest in the winger that will surface more in the coming weeks. Or not.
