According to The Daily Star, Tottenham Hotspur have been offered the chance to sign Paulo Dybala in the summer but the North Londoners have doubts over signing the Argentine.

As Spurs fans will be well aware, Dybala almost completed a move to Tottenham in the summer of 2019, with the transfer reportedly collapsing on transfer deadline day due to issues with the players’ ownership rights (Independent).

The Argentine subsequently had a terrific 2019/10 season for Juve but has found himself sidelined with an injury for much of this season.

France Football (via Calcio Mercato) claimed earlier this week that Spurs were ready to reignite their interest in the 27-year-old this summer. 

However, The Daily Star now claim that, although the Lilywhites have been offered the chance to sign the forward, the club are not preparing a summer transfer bid.

The report reveals that Juve are ready to sell Dybala for around £40m after the Argentina international rejected a new contract offered by the Serie A giants. 

Spurs reportedly have to sell some of their fringe players to fund the transfer and it is asserted that Jose Mourinho’s men also have concerns about the Juve forward’s knee ligament injury which has kept him out of action since January.

The concerns over Dybala’s injury is certainly understandable since we have seen many times in the past how some players struggle to reach their previous level when they come back from a long-term injury. However, signing a player of Dybala’s quality for around £40m should otherwise be a no-brainer.
