With his contract set to expire in the summer, Dybala is yet to agree to new terms amid a breakdown in negotiations.
Liverpool are already preparing for next season, and the Anfield side are scouring Europe for attacking reinforcements. With Mohamed Salah dithering on a contract extension, the six-time Champions League winners are not wasting time finding a probable replacement.
The Egyptian, who is on duty for the Pharaohs at the Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon, has less than 18 months left on his current deal, which means he will be free to discuss with other clubs next January. Negotiations are still going on, but both parties have yet to find common ground with the Egyptian holding out for wages in the region of £300,000 a week.
Meanwhile, as both parties dither over an agreement, Liverpool have set their sights on Paulo Dybala. An acquisition like that should convince Salah of their seriousness in matching his ambitions.
Liverpool ready to make Dybala offer in the summer
With the season past its halfway mark, Liverpool are working on plans to bring in top quality reinforcements, with their quest taking them to Italy. Reports suggest the Anfield side is preparing a summer offer for Juventus star Paulo Dybala.
Liverpool hang their hopes on the Argentine not renewing his contract with the Bianconeri. Dybala will see his contract at Juventus end in the summer, and Jurgen Klopp is waiting on the sidelines to make a move.
Talks between Dybala and Juventus seemed to have yielded dividends last November. Both sides looked to have agreed to a five-year contract worth €10 million per season, including add-ons. Dybala’s injury, however, put a hold to talks, much to the amazement of the player, as Juventus looks to continue discussions in February.
Inter Milan emerge as favorites
Football Italia report that Liverpool can begin negotiations with Dybala over a pre-contract. The suspension of contracts between Juventus and Dybala has thrown the forward’s future up in the air. Dybala prefers a move away from the Old Lady as the club wants to lower his salary.
The situation has seen Inter Milan join the fray and have emerged as favorites to land the Argentine. Reports suggest that Inter CEO Giuseppe Marotta is staying abreast of the situation. Marotta wants to offer Dybala a more lucrative deal at the end of the season.
It will be a dagger to the heart of Juventus if the Nerazzurri pull off the deal. Inter Milan is currently top of the Serie A and are nine points ahead of fierce rivals Juventus. Juventus remains fifth on the log.
Dybala has scored 11 goals and made four assists for Juventus this season, with his contributions coming from 23 appearances in all competitions.
