Klopp wants Dybala deal done


Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has identified the man he wants to sign to replace Philippe Coutinho.

The player he is said to have set his sights on is Juventus attacker Paulo Dybala, according to a report by Mediaset Sport.

They claim that Klopp has told the club to launch a move to bring the Argentina international to Anfield at the end of the campaign.

Liverpool were linked with a bid for the twenty-four year old when he left Palermo to join the Serie A champions, so it is not the first time he has been touted as a potential signing.

But the price tag is likely to be much higher should the club decide to go ahead and try to sign Dybala on this occasion.

According to the article, Juventus will demand a fee in excess of £110m before they even consider allowing their star man to make an exit.

That kind of money is likely to exclude Liverpool from the bidding – despite the £145m received from the sale of Coutinho to Barcelona in January.

The club gave £75m to Southampton in the deal to bring Holland international Virgil Van Dijk to Anfield and RB Leipzig will also receive a hefty fee when Naby Keita arrives.
