Antonio Conte is keen to sign Paulo Dybala for Tottenham this month if he does not extend his contract with Juventus, according to Corriere della Sera. 

The Argentina international has entered the final six months of his current deal with the Bianconeri and has been free to discuss signing a contract with foreign clubs since the start of January. 

It was suggested that Juve were set to offer Dybala a fresh deal, but were later keen to shorten the terms of the offer due to the 28-year-old missing a number of games through injury at the start of the season. 

Corriere della Sera claims Dybala’s future with the Bianconeri now hangs in the balance, with discussions of a new contract currently at a standstill. 

The report states that should a deal not be agreed, Tottenham are waiting in the wings alongside the likes of Inter Milan, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid ahead of securing a potential coup. 

Spurs boss Conte is said to be ‘in love’ with Dybala, with the Argentine having come tantalisingly close to securing a move to North London in the summer of 2019. 

However, it is also added that no clubs have come forward to make a move for Dybala as of yet, with the power still in Juventus’ hands. 

Spurs Web Opinion 

Spurs have likely been keeping tabs on Dybala for the last couple of seasons since that disappointing transfer breakdown in 2019. He is still a really quality creative option that Spurs could do with through the middle, but it seems clear that plenty of clubs will be interested in acquiring him.
