Liverpool dream XI featuring Juventus superstar Paulo Dybala
The buzz of World Cup football has slowed down the tempo of the transfer market to an extent. However, the latest rumours of Cristiano Ronaldo’s alleged Juventus move are understandably making it to the headlines despite all the thrills and spills of the ongoing football carnival in Russia.
The 24-year-old attacker is indubitably a rising star and he could partner the five-time Ballon d’Or winner up front. But signing Ronaldo will not be cheap and the Serie A giants might be tempted to offload Dybala.
Jurgen Klopp, who is still in search of Philippe Coutinho’s alternative, is leaving no stone unturned. The Argentine returned 26 goals and 7 assists last term for the Bianconeri but was handed only 22 minutes of first-team action in his nation’s disastrous World Cup campaign. His lack of involvement is being assumed as one of many reasons why Albicelesete failed to deliver.
The Reds must strengthen themselves to attain title glory next season and are ready to ‘formulate a concrete offer’ as reported by TuttoMercatoWeb.
Liverpool already have a lethal attacking third comprising Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino. The trio must replicate their stunning form from the previous campaign, particularly after the additions of Naby Keita and Fabinho.
Yet a creative individual is required to orchestrate their front trio and Dybala, who predominantly operates as a midfield attacker or second striker, could be a great fit.
His swift movement, stunning footwork and vision make him a worthy successor for the Brazilian, who forced a switch to Barcelona earlier in January.
Dybala will be accompanied by any two from the likes of Fabinho, Keita, Georginio Wijnaldum, skipper Jordan Henderson, veteran duo James Milner and Adam Lallana along with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. All these players are hailed for offering stability, hard work and high-pressing power to snatch possession from the opponents.
To that end, Dybala will be provided with enough chances to exhibit his innovative skills – especially against teams who prefer to sit back.
Although the rumours are still premature, Klopp has turned the entire fanbase into believers and there is nothing wrong if they are dreaming of a line-up that includes Paulo Dybala.
