Tottenham Hotspur have been handed a boost in their rumoured pursuit of Paulo Dybala, with Football Italia reporting that Juventus have refused to meet the Argentine’s contract demands.
Spurs came close to signing Dybala in the summer of 2019 but the transfer fell through on deadline day due to complications with the forward’s image rights.
He was once again linked with a move to Tottenham ahead of the January transfer window and multiple reports now claim that the North Londoners could reignite their interest in Dybala this summer.
The Daily Star even claimed last week that the forward had been offered to Tottenham by Juventus, who are keen to move him on after he rejected the club’s contract offer.
Football Italia now sheds more light on the matter by revealing that the only option on the table for Dybala is the €10m per season offer that the player rejected last year, with Juve calling it a ‘take it or leave it’ offer.
The report reveals that Dybala’s agent has not been in contact with the club recently, with no new negotiations expected, thus increasing the likelihood that the former Palermo will leave Turin in the summer.

If we can get a player of Dybala’s quality for around £40m, which could possible given his contract situation, Spurs should be all over that deal. However, we know that this summer is going to be complicated due to the financial impact of the pandemic and we likely have to be smart in the way we operate. So, I do not expect us to get involved in any potential bidding war for Dybala as some other areas of the squad also need significant strengthening.
