Liverpool manager warned against moving for out-of-contract Juve star

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has been warned against moving for out-of-contract Juve star.

Kevin Phillips, a pundit, has urged Liverpool manager against signing Juventus attacker Paulo Dybala.

The Argentine attacker is out of contract with the Italian giants this summer, and with the confirmation of Fiorentina striker Dusan Vlahovic, it appears that he will go.

After singing for Palermo in 2015, Dybala is now in his sixth season with Juve. In 277 Serie A appearances, he has 111 goals, typically playing second fiddle to Cristiano Ronaldo and Gonzalo Higuain.

Liverpool and Inter Milan have both been mentioned as possible destinations for the player if he leaves in the summer.

Jurgen Klopp’s side are on the verge of signing Porto winger Luis Diaz, having beaten Tottenham to the Colombian’s signature.

If the 25-year-old completes his move to Anfield, Klopp will have choices such as Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Diogo Jota, Roberto Firmino, and David Diaz, with a number of players capable of filling in if necessary.

As a result, former Premier League forward Phillips believes that signing Dybala is not the best deal for the club or the player.

When asked if Dybala would break into Liverpool’s starting XI, Phillips told Football Insider: “No, if I’m being honest.”

“Not when you’ve got Diogo Jota, Mane, and Salah all back fit and firing. Not many in the world could break into that front three.

“Whoever comes, whether it’s Dybala or someone else – they’ll have to fight for their place.

“Of course, we don’t know whether the contract of Salah is going to be resolved. If he’s going to move on, then obviously that will free up a spot.

“But at the minute, no one is breaking in ahead of those three – they’re three of the best in the world.”
