Tottenham Hotspur now look to be without their star striker Harry Kane after he picked up a hamstring injury against Southampton this week, so could it be the perfect time to spend big on a replacement?
The January transfer window is now open and the mind tends to drift back to the summer when Spurs actually reportedly had a bid accepted for Juventus forward Paulo Dybala. Sky Sports claimed that Juventus had accepted a bid of £64.4m for the player.
Unfortunately, it was reported that third-party image rights got in the way of a potential move for the Argentine to join up with Spurs and Pochettino (Independent).
However, since that failed move for the player, Dybala has broken back into the Juventus first team and has been back amongst the goals for the Old Lady.
He has scored nine and assisted another five in 22 games for Juve this season, with three goals coming in the Champions League (TransferMarkt).
Jose Mourinho was asked whether Spurs would go back in for him this window, but the head coach remained tight-lipped.
Charlie Eccleshare reports he said:
Will Tottenham go back in for Dybala in January? I cannot tell you anything, I just can't. If something didn't happen I didn't know, it was pre-season.
