With Gianluca Lapadula officially signed up, Milan are now looking to add Dinamo Zagreb midfielder Marko Pjaca to their ranks. Despite serious interest in Palermo's Franco Vazquez, reports indicate that the Rossoneri view Pjaca as a viable alternative should they priced out of a deal for the Rosanero trequartista.

The twenty-one year old midfielder looks set to be the next in a long line of talented midfield players to emerge from Croatia in recent years, having impressed for his country at the Euros this summer. Milan were also seriously linked with the player last summer, but a deal was never agreed.

Zagreb reportedly value the player at around 12 million euros, yet whilst this might seem steep for a player who is young and relatively unproven, Pjaca has proven his star quality on numerous occasions. The youngster's blend of flair, creativity and technique would be a breath of fresh air in a squad with so few game-changing players in it.

Unfortunately, his arrival could be contingent on the departure of French striker M'Baye Niang who has been linked with a move away from Milan in recent weeks. However, the full plan is likely to remain unclear until negotiations for the sale of the club are completed.
