The report claims as Juve are trying to conclude a deal with Real Madrid for Ronaldo, Liverpool are trying to make an attempt for Dybala. There is a willingness from the Merseyside club to “formulate a concrete offer” as Liverpool are “focusing strongly” on Dybala.

From the player’s side there could also be a willingness to “facilitate negotiation” with Liverpool.
