Juventus have upped the stakes in an effort to persuade Liverpool to sell Emre Can to them next month by offering Marko Pjaca in part exchange.
The Old Lady want to send the Croatian winger to Anfield on loan, report Tuttosport.
The Germany international has refused to sign a new contract and can pen a pre-contract agreement with foreign clubs next month to join on a free transfer next summer.
Jurgen Klopp may still harbour hope of an extension for his compatriot, though failure to show signs of a compromise may push the Reds into negotiating to receive something, rather than losing the player for nothing.
Pjaca, who was a Manchester United target before joining Juve from Dinamo Zagreb, could prove to be a nice consolation.
Liverpool are fourth in the Premier League table with a slim, one-point advantage over Tottenham in the battle to finish inside the top four.
