According to a report in Gazzetta dello Sport (as relayed by The Express), Tottenham Hotspur could make another attempt to sign Paulo Dybala this summer after Juventus were rumoured to have put the forward up for sale.

Spurs came close to signing the Argentina international last summer as reports indicated that the deal collapsed as the club were unable to sort out complications with the Juve man’s image rights before the deadline (Independent).

After the failed transfer, the 26-year-old has gone on to enjoy a prolific season for Juve, even taking home the Serie A Player of the Season award.

Gazzetta dello Sport claim that Jose Mourinho believes Dybala will make an excellent addition to Tottenham’s front line and has asked the club to sign him.

The report claims that the Old Lady are ready to sell the former Palermo man this season in order to raise money for their targets.

The report also asserts that Manchester United are set to push Tottenham for the forward’s signature, with the Red Devils now looking unlikely to complete a move for Jadon Sancho.

With the club’s finances taking a severe hit as a result of the pandemic, we certainly are not going to be in a position to complete big-money signings like we did last summer. In fact, if anything, Juve’s asking price for Dybala is only likely to have increased on the back of the season he just had. Unless Juve are willing to do a swap deal for someone like Ndombele, I do not believe we have any chance of landing Dybala this summer.
