Over the last few weeks, the reports linking Tottenham Hotspur with a move for Juventus forward Paulo Dybala have left Spurs fans extremely excited.

However, there have been many contrasting reports that have come out with some suggesting that Dybala is keen on a move to Tottenham (Tuttosport), while others insist that he wants to stay in Turin and fight for his place (Sky in Italy via Sky Sports).

The Evening Standard have now explained how further along the deal is and how likely it is to be completed.

In the report, it is claimed that Tottenham have been locked in negotiations for Dybala for the last three weeks and that Juventus are holding out for an offer of £80m for the Argentina international.

However, it is suggested that Spurs cannot meet Juve’s asking price while simultaneously shelling out the £67 million that Betis are demanding for Giovani Lo Celso.

It is claimed that the Lilywhites have to prioritise between the two Argentinians after already shattering their transfer record for Tanguy Ndombele earlier this summer.

This very well could be the reason why the Lo Celso deal is getting delayed as Spurs might be looking to save funds to enable a move for Dybala. While it will be unbelievable if Tottenham sign both players before the close of the window, Spurs will have had a good summer even if manage to nab one of the two.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. How can it be a good summer with only one of the two signings. Our squad is severely under strength as witnessed last season. Trippier has gone and ndembele only replaced dembele. We need at least 3 more quality signings including a new full back and back up for kane… and Erik’son and alderweireld to stay otherwise we face the same problems as before
