Robinson: Liverpool told to sign 'phenomenal' Firmino replacement as stunning raid plotted

Paulo Dybala would be a “phenomenal” signing for Liverpool this summer, according to Paul Robinson.

The former Spurs and England goalkeeper, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, said the 27-year-old would be a “great” alternative to Roberto Firmino as a false nine.

Dybala will enter the final 12 months of his contract at Juventus this summer and the Italian giants may opt to cash in, rather than lose him on a free a year later.

El Gol Digital reported last week that the Reds will make a move to sign the Argentina international at the end of the season.

The forward, who is currently sidelined with a knee injury, has contributed three goals and two assists in 16 appearances this term.

When asked if Dybala would be a welcome addition at Anfield, Robinson told Football Insider: “Dybala is a world-class player, what a signing he would be.

“He would be a massive addition to any squad.

“It is very hard to find players who can join or disrupt Liverpool’s front three. They have misfired this year but Jota has come in and has forced Jurgen Klopp’s hand into playing all four of them at times.

“The front three are not invincible, they have been nowhere near the level of performance of previous years so someone like Dybala coming in would add another dimension.

“Liverpool should go for him because he is capable of playing across the front line and he would be a great option as a false nine. He would be phenomenal in that Firmino role.”
