Liverpool have one of the most feared front threes in world football. Jürgen Klopp has assembled and drilled the trio into a telepathic goal grabbing machine. Given that the trio will be ageing together – they’re all born in the same school year – we’ll soon have to consider their replacements. Liverpool could sign Paulo Dybala on the cheap if he refuses a new deal at Juventus.
Paulo Dybala at Juve
Juventus signed Paulo Dybala from Palermo for £23.4m back in 2015.
The Argentinian has gone from strength to strength in Turin, even if he has occasionally fallen out of favour due to the carousel of managers at the Italian side.
His most prolific season for Juve saw him net 22 goals in 33 games. Although his goal scoring figures have fluctuated due to how many different roles he can be deployed in.
Liverpool and Dybala
Liverpool were linked with a move for Paulo Dybala last March by Tuttomercato.

The Reds interest was never made concrete and it was Spurs who came closest to the Argentine’s signature when, according to Sky Sports, they agreed a £64.4m fee in August of last year.
The move never materialised and the forward has remained in Turin.
Liverpool could bag Dybala on the cheap
Paulo Dybala’s contract expires in 2022, meaning that next summer he’ll be entering the final year of his deal.
Although there are talks of a new contract, these reports have been coming out for months with nothing solid developing.
We saw this summer how the Reds can capitalise on these situations as they brought in Thiago for a bargain fee as he entered the final year of his deal at Bayern Munich.
Given the money involved in transfers these days teams are reluctant to lose valuable stars on a free, meaning they’re more likely to cut a deal if they know they can’t tie them down to a new contract.
As long as the Argentine doesn’t sign a new deal, Liverpool could sign Dybala on the cheap next summer. He is just 26-years-old and can play across the front line or behind the striker – he certainly fits the bill of a Jürgen Klopp signing.
