Fulham and Wolves are in the race for Marko Pjaca but who needs him more?

Subject to more than his fair share of loan spells since he moved from Dinamo Zagreb to Juventus, Marko Pjaca could finally be on his way to the Premier League.

Italian news outlet Tuttosport has linked the 23-year-old with a move to both Wolves and Fulham with both sides looking to boost their squads with the talented winger.

While he is currently on loan at Florentina, Football Italia has revealed that the Croatian star could be on his way back to Juventus before another move can take place.

While this does complicate things for everyone, at the moment, Fulham and Wolverhampton Wanderers lead the race for the 23-year-old. This also includes a short loan spell plus an option for a permanent deal worth around €20million, as per Football Italia.

The question for both the Premier League sides, however, is who needs Pjaca more – Claudio Ranieri or Nuno Espirito Santo?

A complicated question, to say the least, but who wouldn’t want the 23-year-old winger? Marko Pjaca is not just a great dribbler; the Croat also happens to be a speedy winger with a splendid eye for goal, although like many he is scarred with inconsistency.

Like many before him and many after him, Pjaca is a product of a brilliant Dinamo Zagreb youth academy that’s produced the likes of Luka Modric, Andrej Kramaric and many more. However, what makes him useful for either side is his versatility to play across the midfield as a winger on either side or a No. 8 and even a false nine.

For Fulham, this gives them so many options if they do bring in the Croatian star, especially with Andre Schurrle, Aleksandar Mitrovic and Luciano Vietto struggling. The 23-year old’s versatility will allow him to play up-top alongside Raul Jiminez for Wolves but it must be noted that they have Helder Costa, Ivan Cavaleiro, Adama Traore and Diogo Jota to call upon.

Although both Premier League clubs are chasing the Croatian international, it’s Fulham who really need the talented 23-year-old. The added bonus for Juventus would be the fact that Marko Pjaca will get to test himself out in another league. If it doesn’t work out, the experience alone will add to his market value for a future move away.
