Over the past few weeks, multiple reports have claimed that Tottenham hold a serious interest in Juventus forward Paulo Dybala. Italian publication La Stampa even claimed that Tottenham have already made an opening bid for the 25-year-old worth £45 million, which was rejected by Juventus.
It is suggested that the Italian giants are looking for a fee in the region of £80m in order to part ways with the Argentinian international (Sky Sports). The forward is expected to return to pre-season training with Juventus next week (The Sun).
However, just as Spurs fans were getting excited about the possibility of signing Dybala, Sky Sports have now put a damper on the excitement by suggesting that a deal is “unlikely” at this stage.
The report claims that Spurs need to sell Christian Eriksen and Danny Rose to be able to fund a move for the Juventus man and now that Eriksen looks like he is set to stay, it is doubtful if Spurs will have the funds to pursue a move for the Argentine.
Some Spurs fans on social media suggested that the news was predictable and they never bought into the hype over the last few days.
It won’t happen. Just get sessegnon and lo celso over the line.

Spurs Web Opinion
It seems extremely unlikely that the club will be willing to shell out big money for both Giovani Lo Celso and Paulo Dybala after already shattering their transfer record this summer for Tanguy Ndombele. It is a shame though as we at Spurs Web believe Dybala has the talent to double his valuation in a year if he gets regular game time at Spurs.
