Tottenham Hotspur involved in a six-way battle for Paulo Dybala
The 27-year-old is enduring a difficult season at Juventus and has failed to hit the heights he managed the last campaign. The Argentine has managed just one goal in 10 appearances so far. (h/t Transfermarkt)
This pales in comparison to the 17 goals and 14 assists he managed on course to leading Juventus to the league title last season. (h/t Transfermarkt)
Dybala came ever so close to joining Tottenham last year, but Daniel Levy pulled the plug on the deal at the last moment, owing to concerns over the player’s image rights. (h/t Football.london)
It would appear that we now have a second bite at the cherry at trying to secure him. However, we will have to contend with competition from the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, and both Manchester clubs. (h/t Express)
While staying put at Juventus is not off the table, the report claims that the Old Lady are keen to bring in income owing to the financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic.
Adding a player of Dybala’s quality to our squad would be a dream come true. A truly world-class signing, the 27-year-old is in his prime and is, on his day, a dominant player.
It was reported earlier this year that Juventus are willing to selling Dybala for £100m. Such an investment by Spurs is highly unlikely, all the more so if one takes into account our recent financial report.

Dybala is a fantastic footballer and signing him would only increase our attacking options. However, the prospect of making a move for him especially if Juventus sticks to their previously quoted price remains unlikely. What happens remains to be seen.
