Liverpool fans take aim at journalist for ruining Dybala hype

It is very easy for football fans to get swept up into the drama of the summer transfer window, and on this occasion, some Liverpool fans got ahead of themselves.

The Reds have only signed one new player this summer, in the form of midfielder Fabinho from Monaco.

Naby Keita moved to Anfield from RB Leipzig last week, but his deal was already signed and sealed a year ago.

Manager Jurgen Klopp has been linked to numerous players in the transfer gossip pages, but one rumour in particular caught the eye.

On July 5, Tuttomercatoweb reported that Liverpool were considering launching an offer for Juventus star Paulo Dybala.

The report suggested that Cristiano Ronaldo’s arrival would affect his new teammate’s position in the squad.

Dybala’s quality is world class, but Liverpool Echo journalist James Pearce has stopped fans from getting too excited.

The reporter claimed on Tuesday that Liverpool have no interest in the Argentina international.

Unsurprisingly, disgruntled fans took aim at Pearce on Twitter.
