According to a report from CalcioMercato, Tottenham Hotspur are ‘really trying’ their best to snap up Paulo Dybala in the summer.

Tottenham came close to landing Dybala in the summer of 2019 but the transfer collapsed on deadline day owing to issues with the Argentine’s image rights.

The Daily Star claimed two weeks ago that Juventus had offered the 27-year-old to Tottenham but Jose Mourinho’s men were unsure as to whether to make a move for the forward.

The Daily Mail claimed a few days ago that the Italian giants are likely to cash in on Dybala as they cannot afford to hand a new contract to the former Palermo man as well as Cristiano Ronaldo.

CalcioMercato have now insisted that Spurs hold a genuine interest in Dybala and hope to complete a deal this summer as the forward’s image rights are no longer an issue. 

The player, who is about to enter the final year of his contract, is said to be exploring his various options.

The report reveals that Juve are keen for the 27-year-old to seal a move away from the Allianz Stadium.

Spurs Web Opinion 

In order to be able to afford Dybala, we likely need to first move on the likes of Dele Alli, Harry Winks and Davinson Sanchez for decent transfer fees. I am not convinced that we will pay the fee Juve are likely to demand for Dybala since there are other areas of the squad that also need to be addressed.
