Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly reignited their interest in signing Juventus forward Paulo Dybala on a free transfer this summer.
The Argentine’s contract is due to expire in July and negotiations have been called off with the Italian giants ‘not worried’ about the prospect of losing the 28-year-old.
Juventus CEO Arrivabene on Paulo Dybala’s current deal expiring in June: “Nothing has been decided yet [on Dybala’s contract extension], it’s not guaranteed”, tells Corriere dello Sport. 🇦🇷 #Dybala
“It depends on financial parameters and how he will act in the negotiations”.
Spurs have reportedly looked at Paulo Dybala in the past. However, thanks to the presence of Antonio Conte and Paratici – together with Dybala’s contract situation – never have their chances been greater.
Dybala, who almost signed for Spurs back in 2019, after Spurs have agreed a fee in the region of €75million (£69million) with the Old Lady for the Argentine, only for the transfer to fall through due to image rights issues.
The 28-year-old has suffered from various injury issues over the last few seasons, but remains a player of real talent and has scored 11 goals in 23 appearances in all competitions for the Italian giants so far this season.
SPORT have claimed that Spurs have now begun their attempts at securing the signature of one of their top transfer targets already ahead of a potential summer move, with a contract supposedly tabled to the 28-year-old.
Since joining Juventus from Palermo back in 2015, Dybala has registered over 100 goals and more than 40 assists for his side which surely means there is going to be a scrap for his signature, especially when it is not going to cost a penny in regards to a transfer fee.
The Lilywhites face stiff competition from Premier League rivals Liverpool and Barcelona- Kessie’s bound, who both see the Argentine as a possible replacement for Mohamed Salah and Ousmane Demeble respectively, but it seems as though they(Spurs)) are determined not to back down.
Landing a player of Dybala’s qualities would be a real coup for Tottenham and also provide a real competition for Tottenham’s attacking trio Harry Kane, Heung-min Son and Dejan Kulusevski as Dybala is capable of playing anywhere in the front line.
Not only his outstanding attacking attributes but also his trophy-laden career would be a worthwhile addition to Antonio’s Conte squad.
