Tottenham director of football Fabio Paratici is a fan of Juventus star Paulo Dybala, who is set to leave the Serie A giants on a free transfer this summer, according to reports in Italy.
Dybala was strongly linked with a move to Spurs in the summer of 2019, with Sky Sports going as far as reporting the Londoners had struck a £64.4 million deal with Juventus for the player – but the move never materialised.
However, it seems Tottenham could be set to revive that interest.
Italian outlet Calcio Mercato claims Dybala has decided against renewing his contract with Juventus after recent talks with the club, and so the Argentinian will leave on a free transfer at the end of the season.
The report says Spurs are among the interested clubs, with Paratici said to be a ‘great supporter’ of Dybala having worked with him in Turin for many years.
If Paratici could get another deal with Juventus over the line, it would eclipse what he has already achieved by bringing in Rodrigo Bentancur and Dejan Kulusevski – such is the quality of Dybala.
Whether Tottenham will be able to attract Dybala ahead of his other suitors remains to be seen, particularly if they fail to qualify for the Champions League.
