Tottenham strengthened their squad considerably in the summer with the acquisitions of Tanguy Ndombele, Giovani Lo Celso, Ryan Sessegnon, and Jack Clarke.
However, there was some disappointment among some Spurs fans due to the club missing out on a deal to sign Juventus forward Paulo Dybala.
The Independent reported that Spurs had agreed on a transfer fee with the Serie A giants along with personal terms with Dybala but the move collapsed in the end due to complications with the Argentine’s image rights ownership.
It was thought that Juventus were keen to get Dybala off their wage bill and he was expected to depart the club before the September 2nd transfer deadline.
However, Football.London are now reporting that the 25-year-old is set to stay in Turin beyond the transfer deadline after the proposed swap deal with Inter Milan’s Mauro Icardi fell through.
It is claimed that the Lilywhites have been given the green light to go back in for Dybala in January.

Since Tottenham already agreed on a transfer fee with Juventus last summer, the deal could be concluded quickly in January if Spurs still want Dybala. However, if the striker gets a run in the Juventus side and reminds them of what he is capable of, it is possible that the Italians might reconsider letting him leave.
