Tottenham have made an remarkable attempt to try and sign Juventus’ £80m highly rated attacking midfielder Paolo Dybala.
According to Football.London, Spurs have made contact with the Italian giants about bringing Mauricio Pochettino’s Argentinian compatriot Dybala to North London.
The 25-year-old, who has made 182 appearances for Juventus since joining from fellow Serie A side Parma in 2015, would become Tottenham’s record-signing, topping the £63m they recently paid Lyon for midfielder Tanguy Ndombele last month.
However, with Giovani Lo Celso also looking likely to join from Real Betis, it would mean Tottenham would have to most likely sell Christian Eriksen. Juventus have previously been linked with the Danish international, so that could pave the way for Dybala to become Spurs’ third summer signing – and possibly the biggest coup in their history.
But Tottenham are outsiders in this deal and would have to fight off interest from a host of top European clubs including Manchester United and PSG.
