Tottenham Hotspur have now reportedly pulled out of a potential deal to sign Paulo Dybala from Juventus on deadline day.
Guardian Sport deputy news editor, Ed Aarons, has claimed that the deal is now definitely off as Dybala’s wages and image rights situation proved to be too expensive for the North London club.
However, he does add that Lo Celso and Sessegnon are still expected to join before the deadline at 5 pm.
This all comes after Juventus accepted a bid for Dybala earlier this week, as Spurs offered something in the region of £64.4m for the forward (Sky Sports).
However, the BBC later reported that Juventus had pulled out of the deal, with Gianluca Di Marzio also stating that the deal was dead as the Italian giants had no replacement for the player this season.
With just three hours left before the window slams shut, Tottenham have still yet to announce any new signings.
Told that Dybala deal is definitely off. Wages and image rights just too much for Spurs. Still a great window with Lo Celso and Sessegnon incoming
