Atletico Madrid have reportedly prepared a lucrative contract offer for Liverpool target Paulo Dybala this summer.
Earlier this year, the Argentina international was linked with a move to Anfield, and speculation has persisted regarding a possible departure from Juventus for the attacker.
Dybala’s agent confirmed that the player is exploring his options ahead of next season, and it seems Atletico are in the running to sign him.
According to claims from Spanish news outlet Mundo Deportivo, as cited in a report from Calciomercato, Diego Simeone’s side have baulked at the €100 million asking price that Juventus have set for the ex-Palermo youngster.
However, they would be willing to tempt Dybala to the Wanda Metropolitano with an enticing contract offer as they look to replace Antoine Griezmann, who wants to leave Atletico this summer.
It is stated that the La Liga giants are ready to pay the 25-year-old €9 million per season along with additional bonuses should he opt to move to the club.
Other attackers who Liverpool should consider signing this summer
Depay has been excellent for Lyon. His pace, trickery and direct style would fit in nicely at Anfield.
Pepe is another who has been outstanding in Ligue 1. He has been at the forefront of Lille’s success this season and would give Jurgen Klopp an option on the right.
Bergwijn has been among the Eredivisie’s best players this season. His excellent form for PSV Eindhoven hasn’t gone unnoticed, and he’d be a shrewd signing.
Thauvin has come on leaps and bounds since his unsuccessful spell at Newcastle United. The Marseille winger would be a good addition for Liverpool.
Ziyech’s superb form for Ajax in both the Eredivisie and in the Champions League has been well documented. Able to play centrally, on the left or the right, he’d be an excellent signing.
