The link between the two parties has seemingly come out of nowhere, but judging by the speculation surrounding the Merseyside outfit, manager Jurgen Klopp is keen to recruit a new attacking star.

Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane terrorised defences last season, but the club need more strength in depth in order to challenge on all fronts.
On Monday, it was reported by Twitter account @Futbol_Mercado that Liverpool are prepared to part with €90m (approximately £80m) to sign the Argentina international, who scored 26 goals and registered seven assists in 46 appearances in all competitions for Juventus last season.

At Liverpool, Klopp uses Firmino as the focal point of attack in a false nine role, which could be adopted by Dybala.
More likely, though, the Argentine would sit further behind, pulling the strings and providing service for Firmino, Mane and Salah.
Whether a transfer is in motion is yet to be determined, but this latest update has got some Liverpool fans excited on Reddit.
