Dybala hat-trick raises questions on why Liverpool were not seeking move

The Reds’ interest in the 24-year-old was denied during the summer window.

Liverpool have started the season in eye-catching form and are enjoying a seven-match unbeaten run in the Premier League.

The Reds are looking strong in their assault for Manchester City’s league title and have seen their attacking continent share the goals this season, with Sadio Mane and Daniel Sturridge both finding the net four times.

Last season’s record-breaker Mohamed Salah has hit three along with Roberto Firmino, with James Milner being the other player to have found the net more than once this season after his two goals.

 

A busy summer window saw Jurgen Klopp’s side linked with plenty of top talents from across Europe and fans would have been excited about suggestions that Juventus ace Paulo Dybala was a target following Cristiano Ronaldo’s switch from Real Madrid.

However, The Liverpool Echo reported that Liverpool were not keen on the Argentina international – and questions should now be asked as to why following his fantastic hat-trick in the Champions League on Tuesday evening.

Dybala’s opening goal was a thing of beauty, cushioning a volleyed-finish into the far corner after Leonardo Bonucci’s long ball forward, before two close-range finishes either side of the interval sank Swiss champions Young Boys.

The 24-year-old opened his account for the season in last week’s victory over Bologna and carried the mantle for the Old Lady in the absence of Ronaldo, who served a one-game suspension after being sent off last time out against Valencia.
