Tottenham Hotspur look to have received a huge boost in their pursuit of Juventus striker Paulo Dybala, according to a report from Sky Italia. Tottenham continue to be connected with a move for the 28-year-old player, who is set to become a free agent at the conclusion of the season.
Maurizio Arrivabene, the CEO of Juventus, recently stated that Dybala will be departing the Old Lady this summer, ending a seven-year company with the club.
Of course, the Argentina international came close to joining the english team in previous transfer windows, but the deal fell through owing to image rights difficulties, but they have now been given another shot.
Inter Milan’s desire has been denied, according to Sky in Italy, since the club must undertake economic analyses’ before contemplating any additions this summer.
As a result, despite being tipped as frontrunners to sign the 32-cap Argentina ace, the reigning Serie A winners are likely to cut their losses rather than pursue the dynamic attacker.
Now, it’s been reported that Atletico Madrid and Barcelona will compete for the signing of Dybala, who is considering a move to the Premier League.
Given the Argentinian’s caliber, it’s unsurprising that Europe’s top would be interested, and the fact that one of the key players is already out of the running is undoubtedly a great boost for Fabio Paratici and his team.
Despite his diminishing deal, Dybala is still valued at £36 million (Transfermarkt). Signing the guy compared to Liverpool ace Roberto Firmino would be a fantastic signing – the Brazilian kick-started Jurgen Klopp’s reconstruction on Merseyside, so could Dybala do the same for Antonio Conte in London?
Ex-Spurs and England goalkeeper Paul Robinson believes Dybala would be a “huge” addition to a Premier League club, and that conviction is backed up by his 19 direct goal contributions in only 29 appearances this season.
