The Argentina striker played only a few minutes of his country’s disappointing World Cup campaign, and is currently enjoying a holiday before heading back to Turin for his pre-season training.
But according to Twitter account Futbol Mercado, Dybala is the target of a £85 million bid from Merseyside and, intriguingly, Dybala follows the account starting all of the rumours:
El Liverpool está dispuesto a pagar 90 millones de euros por el delantero argentino de la Juventus, Paulo Dybala.

That seems to have added credence to the notion that Jurgen Klopp could be about to splash out some of the money brought in when Philippe Coutinho departed for Barcelona, and there’s plenty of Reds fans who are starting to envisage the 24-year-old in that iconic red jersey:

€90m for Dybala I’d take that as a Coutinho replacement. Imagine him behind Salah, Mane and Firmino 😍. If you think I’ll believe the source because Dybala follows them, then yes I am. 😂

The real question is why hasn't any one of the reliable Liverpool journalists denied the Dybala rumours?

Do you really think there’s any chance Liverpool would be able to tempt Dybala to Anfield? And how would he fare in English football?
