Tottenham Hotspur were heavily linked with a move for Juventus striker Paulo Dybala during the closing days of the January transfer window.
The Champions League finalists had been in talks with the Italian giants to bring the Argentine to North London only for the deal to fail to materialise (BBC).
Tottenham’s inability to land the 26-year-old proved to be costly after both Harry Kane and Heung-min Son both suffered lengthy spells on the sideline due to injury which left Jose Mourinho’s side short of attacking options.
Dybala admitted in an interview with the Guardian that he came close to leaving the Old Lady in the summer and was unsure of his future until the final moments of the window.
Any hopes which Tottenham have of rekindling their interest in the summer appear to have taken a blow with news that Juventus are looking to extend Dybala’s contract, which expires in 2022 (Bleacher Report).
Juventus director Fabio Paratici told Sky Sport: “We’re working to extend Paulo Dybala’s contract. We want him as part of Juventus for many years”
