According to TuttoMercatoWeb (as relayed by The Daily Express), Tottenham Hotspur have decided against making a move for Paulo Dybala in light of Dejan Kulusevski’s impressive displays. 

Kulusevski has hit the ground running in North London since his loan move from Juventus on January transfer deadline day, with the Swede having nine-goal contributions to his name in the Premier League since his arrival (Transfermarkt).

Reports indicate that Spurs are expected to take up the option to make the deal permanent for £25m this summer (Daily Mail).

Dybala is expected to leave Juventus when his contract runs out at the end of the season (Transfermarkt), with some reports over recent weeks naming Spurs as one of the front-runners for the Argentine’s signature (Foot Mercato).

However, TuttoMeractoWeb have now explained that Antonio Conte’s men are no longer after the Argentine and have instead turned their attentions to other targets following the impact Kulusevski has made at the club.

Spurs Web Opinion

If Spurs do sign Dybala, one would expect him to play off the right – a position that Kulusevski has made his own since arriving at the club. So, it would not make much sense for the North London club to pursue the Argentine. 

I would not be surprised if the club decide to sign a striker on the cheap who can be used as Kane’s backup and use the majority of the transfer budget to strengthen at left centre-back and the wing-back areas.
