Paulo Dybala could join Inter Milan this summer as a free agent but he’s open to a Premier League move and was offered to Liverpool earlier this year.
The Argentine could be an interesting option for Julian Ward to consider as he takes over from Michael Ward as sporting director.
He’s got big boots to fill as his predecessor brought the likes of Mohamed Salah, Virgil van Dijk and Andy Robertson to the club, displaying that he could seal negotiations for varying profiles of players.
In Robertson, he helped identify and sign a future superstar and the Scotsman has been an incredible player for Liverpool since arriving at Anfield for £8million.
Paulo Dybala tells ESPN on his future: "I am quite calm, the people who work with are taking care. In Italy I am very comfortable. I would still like to know other leagues like Premier, Liga… but I'm happy in Italy". 🇦🇷 #Dybala

In Salah, he signed the best winger the Premier League has ever seen, signing him when he was considered a ‘Chelsea flop’ and Jurgen Klopp took him to unprecedented heights.
In van Dijk, Edwards helped navigate a complaint to officials at the Premier League over tapping up to bring the Dutchman to Anfield and he has been transformative for the Reds.
Ward could go out on a limb in his first summer as the club’s sporting director to bring Paulo Dybala to Merseyside in what would be a quite risky move, admittedly, but one with a huge upside.
The 28-year-old is available for free this summer and while he hasn’t followed in Salah’s steps as far as his form is concerned over the last five years, he’s still one of the best-attacking midfielders in the world in a technical sense.

According to TUTTOmercatoWEB, Liverpool were planning a move to sign Dybala with ‘club chiefs expected in Italy’ back in February.
Their hopes were to wrap up a deal to sign him after the £222,000/week playmaker was offered to Liverpool.
He was reported as being “keen to move to Liverpool.”
While that may (or may not) have been the case, nothing ever materialised.
With Dybala a free agent, bringing him in this summer could be a way to reinforce the squad without having to spend too much.
