Liverpool 'Pushing Hard' To Sign Juventus Forward Paulo Dybala

Liverpool are "pushing hard" to sign Juventus forward Paulo Dybala and could even agree a quick deal for the Argentine, according to reports.

Tutto Mercato say the Reds are serious in their interest in the former Palermo man, who would be an excellent addition to an already frightening Liverpool attack that Jurgen Klopp has at his disposal.

Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah are arguably the most frightening trio in world football today, though there is a need for an extra top-quality option given doubts over the first-team futures of Divock Origi and Daniel Sturridge.

It's said that Liverpool are looking to seal the deal as soon as possible, with Juventus apparently prepared to listen to offers for their No.10.

The arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo has had a negative impact on Dybala's form as he has only managed nine goals in 35 appearances this season, with only four coming in the league.

It's a far cry from his tally when he was their main man in 2017/18, with the 25-year old bagged 26 in 46 appearances across all competitions.

But he's struggled to nail down starting a spot and was recently on the bench for the round of 16 second leg against Atletico as Ronaldo scored his eighth Champions League hat-trick to turn the tie around completely and send Juve into the quarter finals.

Dybala, who has a contract until 2022 with Juventus, is comfortable playing in a deeper role - with his versatility something that would be beneficial to Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool.

Klopp looked set to sign Lyon talisman and playmaker Nabil Fekir in the summer before the Frenchman failed a medical and stayed put.
