Juventus again linked with swapping Paulo Dybala for Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah in summer window… as Egyptian poses in the gym during time off
- Juventus are said to be keen on a swap deal involving Paulo Dybala and Mo Salah
- Reports emerged last month of the Turin club’s interest in signing the Egyptian
- The move from Juventus could be worth £44m in cash plus Dybala included
It was reported last month on the front page of Tuttosport that the Italian giants had tabled an extraordinary offer for the Egyptian worth €50million (£44m) in cash as well as Dybala.
And now the story is gathering pace once again with Italian outlet Tuttomercatoweb claiming Juventus are still keen on the deal.
Juventus have been linked with a swap deal involving Paulo Dybala and Mohamed Salah
Italian publication Tuttosport reported the story on their front page earlier this month
It is claimed Juve’s director of football Fabio Paratici is extremely keen on recruiting the 26-year-old.
Salah has enjoyed two spells with Italian clubs earlier in his career. He played for both Fiorentina and Roma before joining Liverpool in the summer of 2017.
The report suggests Salah is seen ‘as an alternative’ to Juve’s leading target – Federico Chiesa of Fiorentina – though.
Salah signed a new five-year contract at Liverpool last July and the terms do not include a release clause.
The former Chelsea forward has scored relentlessly since joining Jurgen Klopp’s side, netting 20 goals in 41 games for the Reds this season, contributing a further nine assists.
Dybala, now on international duty with Argentina, has fallen down the pecking order in Turin
Dybala has become an integral part of the set-up at Juventus but has made way as the team’s main star following the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo last summer.
The Argentina international has scored nine goals in 35 games this season but the club appear content to use him as a makeweight in this deal.
As the Reds chase a first Premier League title in 20 years, Salah shared an image of him working out in the gym on Friday.
He is currently enjoying a break from international duty with Egypt but found time during his fortnight off to pump some iron as he prepares for the run-in.
