Reds could still land Argentine hot shot.
Liverpool have been handed a new hope at being able to sign Palermo striker Paulo Dybala as Arsenal rule out a move after refusing to meet his £31m valuation, according to the Daily Express.
The Gunners were thought to be in poll position to land the 21-year-old’s signature after he had been likened to compatriot Sergio Aguero, but manager Arsene Wenger is only prepared to offer a fraction of the Sicilian side’s valuation of him.
That news could now come as a huge boost to rivals Liverpool, and even Manchester United, who have both been credited with more than a passing interest in his services.
Both clubs are believed to be more prepared than the Gunners to meet the high asking price.
Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini has previously said on the speculation: “Within two years, he’s going to be better than Cristiano Ronaldo, [Lionel] Messi and [Zlatan] Ibrahimovic.
“It would take €40m (£31m) to take him away from us. He’s the best striker in Serie A.”
