Liverpool could be set for another transfer window of lavish spending in the summer.
The Reds are currently fighting both Manchester City and Tottenham for the Premier League title but also performed exceptionally off the field last year. Their Champions League final run pumped enormous amounts of cash into the club leading to Liverpool posting record amounts of profits. This means that Jurgen Klopp is surely likely to be backed significantly in the upcoming transfer window to strengthen his squad even further.
One area the German will definitely look to strengthen is attack. Both Divock Origi and Daniel Sturridge are widely expected to leave the club after falling out of favour in recent weeks. That would leave only Rhian Brewster to provide any sort of competition to Roberto Firmino and the youngster remains untested at the highest level.
One man Klopp could look to sign is Juventus superstar – Paulo Dybala. Valued at £99m by Transfermarkt, the Argentine has blossomed into one of the world’s finest forwards since swapping Palermo for Turin back in 2015. Dybala has consistently been one of the Serie A’s top performers and would be an excellent fit in the current Liverpool side.
The Argentina international is capable of playing both as the central striker or as a number ten – roles that Firmino has been rotated in this season. Dybala is a lethal finisher, but has scored just eight goals in all competitions following the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo. Dybala’s role has evolved as he is now the creative force for Juve. His arrival would allow Klopp to move Mohamed Salah back to the right wing and keep teams guessing as to who would lead the line.
Regardless of whether they lift the title this season, their chances would be significantly boosted next year if they broke the bank to lure Dybala to Anfield.
