Juventus forward Paulo Dybala says he would be interested in making a switch to England or Spain this summer.
The Argentinian international will be leaving Juve when his contract expires at the end of this month. Liverpool, Manchester United, Tottenham, Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City have all been linked with a move to sign the 28-year-old on a free transfer, and when asked about his future, the player said he was open to a new challenge:
“I am quite calm, the people who work with me are taking care of things. In Italy, I am very comfortable. I would still like to know other leagues like [the] Premier [League], [La] Liga, but I’m happy in Italy. I’ve been there for 10 years, I know the tournament and now they treat me as if I were Italian. I am focused on the national team, I have to think with a calm head for my future. I have not decided anything, my agent thinks about it, I have to think about Argentina.”
It’s probably unlikely that the Reds will make a move for Dybala. His fitness record and salary demands do set off a few alarm bells, although he does possess the attributes to be a very capable replacement for Roberto Firmino.
The Brazilian has twelve months remaining on his contract and, while he has expressed his desire to remain at Anfield, it’s unlikely that he will be offered a new deal. Were he to be let go then there could be an opening for Dybala, but all the signs point towards Firmino staying for his final year.
