Everton should forget Marko Pjaca and give Nikola Vlasic a chance

Everton are said to be keen on Juventus attacker Marko Pjaca. As reported by Virgilio, the Croatian is allowed to leave Juventus this summer. He wants a move to Fiorentina, but the Bianconeri will not sell to another Italian club.  Therefore Monaco, Sevilla and Leicester City are all keen, along with Everton.

The winger, who enjoyed a successful stint at Schalke 04 last season, was a part of the Croatia squad that made the World Cup final this summer.

Everton have their own Croatian attacker that deserves a chance first. Everton paid £10 million for Nikola Vlasic last summer. The player had impressed the Everton bosses Ronald Koeman and Steve Walsh during a Europa League clash with Hajduk Split.

However, he has so far had to bide his time. Vlasic spent most of last season as a substitute. That said, he was also one of the only Everton players to come out of their disastrous Europa League campaign with any credit. Two goals in six games, he was one of the only players to impress.

With a complete change in management Vlasic faces a huge challenge winning over the new boss this season. Bringing in Pjaca, to some, might help. Both are young Croatian talents and they could help each other. That could work … if the pair did not play in the exact same position.

Everton, therefore, need to give Vlasic a chance, before bringing in a carbon-copy this summer.
