Reports out of Italy state that Juventus attacker Paulo Dybala is very keen on moving to Liverpool this summer once his contract expires.
Liverpool are always after a good bargain.
The club have become famous for raiding relegated clubs and taking their best players for next to nothing.
It seems that Liverpool could be close to striking transfer gold once again with another Bosman transfer on the cards.
According to sources in Italy,
Liverpool have made contact with Juventus star Paulo Dybala over a possible pre-contract that would see him join the Reds after the season.
According to TuttomercatoWEB, the Argentinian attacker wants to move to Liverpool.
After refusing any and all contract extension talks with Juventus.
Liverpool are very hopeful of taking advantage of Dybala’s contract situation.
They want to land a star player on a free transfer who would otherwise cost upwards of £45.00m.
Despite positive talks with Liverpool, Massimiliano Allegri has stated that he wants Dybala to stay in Turin.
Massimiliano Allegri on Dybala’s contract situation
“The evaluations of the contracts are the job of the company, they are not things that concern me.
“I raised Dybala, he was a child when he arrived from Palermo, now he’s grown up and he’s an extraordinary player.
“I expect a lot [from Dybala] in this second part of the season.
“The value of the player is beyond doubt. He is a great player.”
Former Juventus striker Alessandro Del Piero has also called the situation between I Bianconeri and Dybala “complicated”.
Liverpool are said to be keen on further talks if Dybala continues to reject new contract talks with Juventus.
Should Dybala join Liverpool Football Club?
In my opinion, Yes, but for only one purpose i.e to play as False 9 because Dybala is not a winger.
He should exclusively play as a striker or an inverter winger if Salah is not available for the Reds.
