Why on earth are Liverpool not in for Paulo Dybala?

Liverpool should be challenging Tottenham Hotspur for the Juventus ace's signature.

This summer has been an extremely quiet one at Liverpool.

Jurgen Klopp has made just two signings in the form of young duo Harvey Elliot and Sepp van den Berg.

Whilst Liverpool are already an incredibly strong outfit, Klopp should surely have made at least one blockbuster signing, in order to give his side the best possible chance of winning the Premier League title this season.

One glaringly obvious option for them would have been Paulo Dyabla, who is a £64.5 million target for Tottenham, according to Italian football expert Gianluca Di Marzio.

 

The Argentine appeared to be closing in on a move for Spurs, before conflicting reports suggested that the deal was off.

Only time will tell whether he ends up moving to north London or not, but the question has to be asked - why on earth are Liverpool  not competing for his signature?

Dyabla, 25, would have been absolutely perfect for the Reds.

He can play anywhere along the front-line, possesses exceptional technique, is deadly in front of goal and has a keen eye for a killer pass.

The Argentina international's stats for Juventus back this up, with 78 goals and 30 assists in 182 appearances for the Old Lady to his name.

Dybala would have given Klopp the opportunity of playing a 4-2-3-1 formation, and could have made Liverpool's attack truly devastating.

And for the price of just £64.5m, it seems like it would have been a no-brainer for Klopp to bring him to Anfield.
