Liverpool have been struggling in front of goal since Christmas. This season has seen the side facing lower blocks than usual, more stubborn and less ambitious opposition. A new arrival in the summer seems inevitable. Liverpool are reportedly plotting a move for Paulo Dybala.
Paulo Dybala in numbers
This season hasn’t been Dybala’s most prolific, mainly because he hasn’t played much.
The Argentine has started just eight games in the league, though injuries have a large part to play.
Dybala has netted twice and assisted twice in the Italian Serie A this term.
His best season in front of goal saw him score 22 times in the league, back in 2017/18.
Despite his obvious talents he has failed to nail himself down as an undroppable starter for Juve.
Liverpool and Paulo Dybala
Another story which keeps popping its head up.
El Gol Digital have linked Liverpool with a move for Paulo Dybala.
The outlet believes the Reds are willing to pay Juventus’ £60m asking price to bring the player to Anfield in the summer.
The news could irritate Jose Mourinho who came close to signing the Argentine in 2019.
The North London side reportedly had a bid accepted for the forward but the move collapsed.
What RTK has to say
Liverpool signing Paulo Dybala would be an ambitious move.
The Reds would be adding real quality to the forward line.
Whether he’s the man we need is another matter entirely, we don’t see him as the fox in the box, lethal finisher that the club are crying out for.
The Argentine’s versatility certainly makes him an attractive option but he may be the right player at the wrong time.
