Liverpool Stun Rivals With Sensational Swoop For World-Class Forward

By timgarrett IN Premier League,Transfers - 21:00 Jul 6th 2018

Closing the gap to champions Manchester City will not be easy for any of the chasing pack, but Liverpool showed last season that they are more than capable of getting the better of Pep Guardiola’s men on any given day.

The additions of Naby Keita and Fabinho certainly seem to be shrewd ones, adding further energy to a side that was already brimming with it, but it is clear from their attempts to bring in Nabil Fekir that the Reds are still looking for another quality signing in the final third.

Step forward Paulo Dybala if the latest media reports are to be believed, with Jürgen Klopp said to be poised to take advantage of Juventus’ £88m move for Cristiano Ronaldo by mounting his own bid for their Argentinian star.

Of course, bringing the talented 24-year-old to Anfield would only be possible should the five-time Ballon d’Or winner first switch clubs, something that is far from guaranteed to happen, but what a signing he would be for the Merseyside outfit.

Operating in more advanced areas than Philippe Coutinho, but blessed with the same sort of technical skill, running ability and eye for the spectacular as the Brazilian, Dybala has been an absolute revelation during his time in Turin:

In fact, the gifted forward has been directly involved in 72 goals over the course of the previous three Serie A campaigns, up 26 on the efforts of Coutinho in the Premier League during the same period, whilst he proved during his final season at Palermo just how good he really is:

Playing in a mid-table side, the Argentinian weighed in with a combined total of 23 goals and assists, just two shy of the numbers served up by Gonzalo Higuain at Napoli, so it is clear that Liverpool would be getting their hands on a phenomenal talent were they to pull this deal off.
