Gazzetta dello Sport have claimed that rumoured Tottenham target Paulo Dybala has agreed to join Inter Milan.

Dybala’s seven-year spell at Juventus is set to come to an end this summer when the Argentine’s contract runs out, with previous reports indicating that Spurs were vying for his signature (Foot Mercato).

The North London club were said to be facing competition from the likes of Paris Saint-Germain, Inter Milan and Atletico Madrid for the 28-year-old, with the Nerrazuri being named as the favourites to land the forward (But! Football Club).

If Gazzetta’s latest report is to be believed, the former Palermo man is now bound for Inter after reaching an agreement with the club which will see him earn €6million-per-year (£5million) plus bonuses.

The report claims that Dybala’s entourage held a meeting with the Inter hierarchy last week where details of the transfer were discussed and his intention to remain in Italy was made clear.

It is explained that the forward was keen to remain in the Serie A and take ‘revenge’ against Juventus for not offering him the contract he desired, by joining one of their rivals.

Gazzetta adds that Dybala’s move to the San Siro is now in ‘the last kilometres of the marathon’.

Spurs Web Opinion

Even if Dybala was on Tottenham’s radar previously, Kulusevski’s impact would have convinced the club against pursuing the Argentine. 

The Juve star’s move to Inter could now open the door for Lautaro Martinez to leave the San Siro this summer.

However, I suspect Martinez is much more likely to end up at Arsenal or Man Utd, who are in more desperate need of a top-class striker than Spurs are.
