Tottenham Hotspur make offer for Juventus forward Paulo Dybala ahead of the summer transfer window
As per the claims of an Italian journalist (h/t football.london), Tottenham Hotspur have made an offer for Juventus forward Paulo Dybala ahead of the summer transfer window, with the player set to be available for free.
The Argentine sees his current deal with Juventus run out at the end of the season, and with neither club nor player able to reach an agreement regarding a contract extension, the goalscorer is set to leave as a free agent.
The Serie A side’s loss may be Tottenham’s gain, who are looking to sign a forward in the upcoming transfer window to bolster their attack and add more quality to the side in order to transfer the team to become world-beaters.
Currently, the first team only has Harry Kane who is capable of playing as a striker, with no other natural number nines in the squad. Manager Antonio Conte will be looking for someone who can not only provide competition for Kane but also support him up front.
Spurs one of Dybala’s options
With this in mind, the Lilywhites have made an offer for Dybala. This would be a great opportunity to sign the Argentina international, not having to spend a penny to secure his services after he and Juve failed to agree on a new deal.
Tottenham may also have an advantage in signing the forward, as managing director of football Fabio Paratici remains close with the player he once signed for the Bianconeri. Although the 28-year-old has not yet made a decision regarding his future, Spurs are one of his options.
The winter transfer window saw Paratici raid his former employers to complete a double swoop of Dejan Kulusevski and Rodrigo Bentancur, who have turned out to be excellent signings for manager Antonio Conte.
Conte will now hope that Paratici can repeat his trick once again and take advantage of Juventus’ situation, stealing Dybala from under their noses for free. It is an offer that any interested club would jump at, given how talented the forward is.

At 28, he is in the prime years of his playing career, and to snap him up without having to pay a single penny would be an incredible transfer decision – if we manage to pull it off, that is. Dybala is said to have other options on his horizon, but at Tottenham, he would get to play under a Juve legend in Conte.
It remains to be seen if the supposed offer we have proposed to the forward convinces him to swap Turin for London. Whether or not we get him, a forward option is required in the summer in order to give Kane some breathing space at times.
