According to recent reports, Liverpool are interested in making a move for Juventus second striker and former Tottenham Hotspur target, Paulo Dybala.
The report by Spanish publication AS (translated by Sport Witness), claims that Dybala is ‘on the radar’ of Jurgen Klopp’s side, with the 27-year-old said to be ‘looking for a way out’ of the Italian club.
Since moving to Juve from Palermo in what was a £36 million deal back in 2015, the Argentine has gone on to feature 238 times for the Serie A side, scoring 96 goals and providing 38 assists along the way.
And, while Spurs have been heavily linked with a move for Dybala in the past, as well as reportedly being offered the chance to sign the player once again in recent weeks, AS now claim that Liverpool have ‘been in touch with the entourage of the Argentina international’, who had been dubbed “the new Messi” by Palermo’s ex-president Maurizio Zamparini.

Transfer Tavern Take
While Dybala is a player of undeniable talent, the question must be raised as to whether Liverpool actually require the services of the 27-year-old.
At present, Klopp is blessed with the options of Sadio Mane, Diogo Jota, Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino, Xherdan Shaqiri, Takumi Minamino and Divock Origi who can all operate from at least one position across his front three.
As such, while Dybala would no doubt add quality to Klopp’s current plethora of attacking talent, in our opinion, we would not expect the Argentine to be very high on the club’s list of targets this January.
