Klopp will also have one eye on the future of Mo Salah, whose sensational form this season has attracted the attention of the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona.

Either way, Dybala would serve as a phenomenal signing for Liverpool, who already boast a formidable attacking trio of Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane.

The Argentine star joined Juventus from Palermo in 2015 for around £23m, but has gone on to establish himself as one of the best strikers in the world.

During his time at the Serie A giants, Dybala has averaged well over a goal every other game in the league – with 51 in just 91 appearances – including a hat-trick at the weekend.

His prolific form has seen him attract the attention of some of Europe’s best teams.

However, Klopp will be hoping to lure Dybala to Anfield with the promise of Champions League football and a supremely impressive attacking style of play.

Liverpool’s case will certainly be helped should they win the Champions League – with the Reds currently leading Manchester City 3-0 after one leg of their quarter-final showdown.
