Pete O’Rourke has claimed Tottenham could pursue a move to sign Juventus forward Paulo Dybala this summer.
Tottenham were close to capturing Dybala in 2019 under Mauricio Pochettino and had prepared a bid worth over £64 million for the Argentina international at the time (The Guardian).
However, a deal failed to materialise with image rights proving to be a major stumbling block (Sky Sports), which subsequently saw him remain Juventus.
However, the 28-year-old is facing an uncertain future with the Bianconeri with his contract looking set to expire at the end of the season and talks over fresh terms currently at a standstill (90min).
CalcioMercato have since reported that Tottenham could look to snap up Dybala on a free transfer this summer with Antonio Conte continuing to have high admiration of the Juve man.
Journalist O’Rourke has reiterated Spurs’ interest and backs the club to be in the mix to secure Dybala’s signature this summer.
O’Rourke told GiveMeSport: “I think Dybala, long-term target under [Mauricio] Pochettino, I’m sure he will definitely be on the list in the summer but I think lots of clubs in Europe will be interested in the playmaker this summer on a free transfer, potentially.”
Spurs Web Opinion
Dybala is still one of Juventus’ key players and they won’t want to lose him for nothing, but they have to be quick in their negotiations for a new contract.
He would be a top quality signing for Spurs, however, and it was so disappointing to see the move fall through a couple of seasons ago – but they should definitely explore it again.
