Tottenham Hotspur are preparing to make an offer to land Paulo Dybala from Juventus, but are yet to make contact with the Italian giants.
According to The Times, Spurs rate their chances of landing the forward as slim but chairman Daniel Levy is said to be prepared to break the club’s record transfer for the second time this summer.
The arrival of Tanguy Ndombele earlier this month for £65million which smashed the club’s previous transfer record of £42million, which saw centre-back Davinson Sanchez arrive from Ajax in 2017 (The Sun).
If Spurs want to land Dybala this summer, it is said that they would have to pay north of £80million to bring the 25-year-old to North London.
Earlier today, the club extended their shirt sponsorship deal with AIA is worth £360 million over eight years (The Times) and could use some of the income to finance the deal for the Argentina international.
Spurs have already recouped £28million this summer having sold Kieran Trippier to Atletico Madrid for £20million and he was followed out the door by Vincent Janssen who headed to Mexico in an £8million deal (The Times).
The attempt to sign Dybala would be a huge signal of intent, however ‘nearly’ signings do not help our cause to win silverware. We need to break the bank and reap the rewards.
