Tottenham Hotspur were seemingly close to signing Paulo Dybala on deadline day this summer, which would have been a key big-name addition for the Lilywhites.

Spurs actually had a £64.4m bid accepted by the Italian giants for the player, but there was not enough time to get the deal over the line (Sky Sports).

Dybala’s rather strange third-party image rights deal made it rather tricky for Tottenham to meet the needed costs and iron out the wrinkles before the window slammed shut (Independent).

Just under £65m would have been a new club record for Tottenham, overtaking the signing of Tanguy Ndombele from earlier in the same window.

However, a new report has revealed that Spurs were actually getting a bargain deal for the 25-year-old Argentine.

The CIES Football Observatory use ages, form, positions, leagues, and many other variables to fully calculate the value of a player.

In their opinion, Dybala is actually currently worth around £99m, meaning that Spurs were getting him at over a £30m discount (Football London).
