Paulo Dybala is reportedly set to leave Juventus in January and Liverpool could make a sensational move to sign the Argentinian and finally replace Philippe Coutinho’s creativity that was lost when he moved to Barcelona.
While Liverpool have done well to beat four tricky teams already this season, there are still questions over whether or not the Reds have enough creativity and trickery in midfield to consistently beat sides that employ a low block defence.
A deal for Nabil Fekir already seems as though it is completely dead after negotiations with Lyon broke down before the World Cup and it seems as though it will not be resurrected in January or next summer.
One player that appears to be on the market and would radicalise the Reds’ side is Paulo Dybala.
Maurizio Zamparini, owner of Dybala’s former club Palermo, says that Juventus want to sell the attacker in January and have already received offers from clubs in Spain and England.
RMC are cited by the Mirror as quoting Zamparini as follows: “He’ll leave, because Juventus want to get €120million. In January, I think he’ll leave for Spain. He has offers in Spain and England.”
The Palermo chief believes that he’ll leave for Spain but that won’t stop Liverpool poking their heads around if they hold an interest in Dybala.
As we’ve seen over the last nine months, the Reds aren’t afraid to stump up the cash and I wouldn’t put it past Michael Edwards to work his magic and get Dybala for less than £106m (€120million).
