Calciomercato.it have revealed that Tottenham target Paulo Dybala could demand a contract worth €7m (£5.8m) per season to sign on the dotted line. 

Since Juventus CEO Maurizio Arrivabene confirmed earlier this week that Dybala will leave the Serie A club when his current deal runs out in the summer (TuttoMercatoWeb), the speculation over the Argentine’s future has run rife.

The likes of Foot Mercato and Sky Italia, have named Spurs as one of the leading contenders for the forward’s signature.

90 min have reported that the 28-year-old’s agent is in contact with Tottenham as well as other Premier League clubs ahead of a potential summer transfer. 

CalcioMercato.it have now revealed that Spurs face competition from their North London rivals Arsenal for Dybala’s signature. They also add that the forward’s entourage have had ‘recent contacts’ with Paris Saint-Germain.

The report claims that since Dybala demanded a contract worth €7m (£5.8m) per season to Juventus before the negotiations collapsed, the player would want a similar salary at his next club.

Spurs Web Opinion

Given that Dybala is set to be available on a free transfer, I would expect him to demand a salary much higher than €7m (£5.8m). His entourage could also demand a sizable signing-on fee. I do not expect Spurs to get involved in a bidding war for the forward, especially if the club feel his salary demands are excessive.
