Liverpool deny interest in Paulo Dybala

Paulo Dybala

Liverpool officials claim that they are not interested in signing Juventus forward Paulo Dybala.

Reports in Italy have suggested that the Reds were preparing an £80million offer following a formal enquiry but these claims have been denied by club insiders.

Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp is considering his options after Nabil Fekir’s proposed £53million transfer to Anfield fell through at the 11th hour. Talks have not continued while the World Cup has been underway although Lyon still appear willing to still do business. We wouldn’t be surprised if a deal could be ironed out after the tournament concludes but much will depend on Jean-Michel Aulas and whether or not he is prepared to renegotiate terms.

Speaking recently though, Aulas claimed Fekir would probably still be at Lyon next season.

He said: “I think that Nabil will be at OL next season.

“I have almost a father-son relationship with my players, I gave him the chance to go to Liverpool because it was his dream club.

“I did that too with Tolisso and Umtiti, he is our captain and it is the coach’s wish to keep him.”

Fekir still wants the move and Klopp is unlikely to have ended his interest just like that, but Liverpool will continue to look at alternatives just incase a move for Fekir isn’t struck at a second attempt. We’re informed that medical insurance premiums would need to be negotiated into a deal for Liverpool to proceed.
