​Juventus director Fabio Paratici has stated that it is too early to discuss summer transfers, amid rumours the club are plotting a move to sign Liverpool star Mohamed Salah.

Reports emerged suggesting the Serie A giants had identified Salah as their primary transfer target for next summer, with one even suggesting ​Juventus were set to offer €50m and Paulo Dybala to Liverpool in order to tempt them to part ways with their talisman.

Mohamed Salah

Speaking on ​Radio Rai, Paratici refused to be drawn on the rumours linking his club with ​Salah. He said: “At this moment, it’s all fantasy football, it’s only February, so nobody knows what could happen in June.

“I believe we’ve already signed a big player and it’s [Aaron] ​Ramsey, who has 350 appearances with ​Arsenal. He is already a big signing for us.”

Paratici was then asked about ​Dybala's future at the club. The 25-year-old, who is widely viewed as one of the world's most exciting forwards, has struggled for form this season. With ​Cristiano Ronaldo dominating the goalscoring duties at the Allianz Stadium, Dybala has managed just three goals in 21 ​Serie A appearances since the start of the current campaign.

Paulo Dybala

However, the Juventus director insisted that the club remain committed to Dybala. He said: "[Dybala] is 25, he is a player of Juventus and he has already proven a lot. I am sure he will become a legend and a leader of Juve, he has the technical skills to do it”.

After spending several years as a central striker, Dybala has been forced into a role as a right winger in order to accommodate Ronaldo's introduction to the side. His pace and agility mean he is a capable winger, and he has managed to register six assists for his teammates, but many feel it is a waste of his goalscoring talents.


By contrast, Salah has excelled as a goalscoring winger since he joined ​Liverpool in the summer of 2017. He has racked up a stunning 64 goals in 87 appearances, and his electric form earned him a new contract last summer. With Salah's future now tied to the club until 2023, it would likely take an astronomical offer to tempt Liverpool to part with their star forward.
