Tottenham Hotspur pulled off one of the shock moments of the transfer window this summer when they had a bid accepted for Paulo Dybala.
Sky Sports reported that the North London outfit had submitted a £64.4m bid for the Argentine, which was accepted by his current club, Juventus.
However, Tottenham were unable to get the deal across the line in time, with the Premier League window shutting before the rest of Europe.
The final window will shut on September 2, and Tottenham fans will be hoping to still see Dybala at Juve past that date.
The Daily Star claim that Daniel Levy has already been in contact with Juventus over a potential purchase of Dybala in January instead.
He has apparently told the Italian club that Spurs are serious about acquiring the player, with Sarri looking to sell.
However, Juventus have set their asking price at £130m and could yet sell Dybala as part of a Neymar deal, so there are obstacles to overcome for Spurs.
