Dybala question

There are few more frustrating talents out there than Paulo Dybala.

The Argentine has had a career characterised by injuries, inconsistent runs in the side and moments of magic.

The 27-year-old has spent most of this season on the treatment table, making just eight starts and three sub appearances in the league.

The most frustrating thing is that his ability is undeniable, Alessandro del Piero once described him to Football Italia as a player of ‘extraordinary quality’.

Given Juventus’ financial situation many believe he could be on the move in the summer.

Liverpool and Chelsea want Paulo Dybala

If the player is on the move then he’ll have plenty of suitors.

Liverpool could well rival Chelsea for the signing of Paulo Dybala.

El Gol Digital last week linked Liverpool with a move for Paulo Dybala, suggesting a potential £60m fee.

This week France Football, as cited by the Daily Mail, have claimed Chelsea and Spurs are also interested in Dybala, though the French outlet believes the two London sides value the forward at £48m.

What RTK has to say

Liverpool beating Chelsea to Paulo Dybala would be satisfying.

However, we aren’t sure he suits the Reds at all.

Stylistically he would fit but his injury record is a massive concern.

He’s spent most of this season with the physio, the last thing we need is another fitness worry.
