Three reasons why Liverpool should sign Paulo Dybala

Liverpool don’t have many problems in the squad at the minute. We could maybe do with more quality in depth up top but apart from that we appear quite set. Oh, we also need a dozen centre backs. For now, let’s focus on depth up top. Here are three reasons why Liverpool signing Paulo Dybala would be a good move:

Bargain buy

Paulo Dybala almost moved to Spurs for £64.4m in August 2019.

Since then his contract has been steadily running down.

His deal expires in 2022, meaning this summer he’ll be entering the final year of his deal.

As a result, Juventus will be forced to do business at a reasonable price, otherwise they risk losing him on a free.

We saw this summer how big teams will drop their asking price for top players significantly rather than lose them on a free; we got Thiago at a snip.

Versatility

Liverpool signing Paulo Dybala would make sense because of his versatility.

The Argentine can play up top, off the striker, in attacking midfield or on the right wing.

Jürgen Klopp values this sort of versatility highly because it reduces squad sizes and aids fluid, flowing football.

The 27-year-old would be able to rotate in and out of the side in a number of different roles.

Considering that the Reds are fighting on a number of fronts, this versatility would prove vital.

Depth and competition

At the minute Diogo Jota is pushing the front three but he is pretty much covering all three positions.

Given the poor form of Divock Origi when he’s been afforded opportunities, we need greater strength in depth to provide competition for places.

The Argentine would push the starting front three hard for their place and would also allow the boss to rotate players when they’re tired.

At the minute the starting front line is being run into the ground, this doesn’t have to be the case.
