Juventus have once again been linked with a sensational swap deal involving Paulo Dybala and Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah.
It was reported last month on the front page of Tuttosport that the Italian giants had tabled an extraordinary offer for the Egyptian worth €50million (£44m) in cash as well as Dybala.
And now the story is gathering pace once again with Italian outlet Tuttomercatowebclaiming Juventus are still keen on the deal.
It is claimed Juve’s director of football Fabio Paratici is extremely keen on recruiting the 26-year-old.
Salah has enjoyed two spells with Italian clubs earlier in his career. He played for both Fiorentina and Roma before joining Liverpool in the summer of 2017.
The report suggests Salah is seen ‘as an alternative’ to Juve’s leading target – Federico Chiesa of Fiorentina – though.
Salah signed a new five-year contract at Liverpool last July and the terms do not include a release clause.
The former Chelsea forward has scored relentlessly since joining Jurgen Klopp’s side, netting 20 goals in 41 games for the Reds this season, contributing a further nine assists.
Dybala has become an integral part of the set-up at Juventus but has made way as the team’s main star following the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo last summer.
The Argentina international has scored nine goals in 35 games this season but the club appear content to use him as a makeweight in this deal.
As the Reds chase a first Premier League title in 20 years, Salah shared an image of him working out in the gym on Friday.
He is currently enjoying a break from international duty with Egypt but found time during his fortnight off to pump some iron as he prepares for the run-in.
