Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is eager to secure a deal for Juventus forward Paulo Dybala, according to reports in Italy.
Dybala has been heavily linked with a move to Spurs in recent days amid suggestions Juventus are interested in Danny Rose. There is talk Tottenham could try to convince the Italian champions to reduce their £80m valuation of Dybala if a £25m deal for Rose goes through.
However, Sky Sports claims Juventus may include Dybala in a bid for Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku, who is also attracting interest from Inter Milan. Juventus are apparently willing to let Dybala join United if Lukaku moves in the other direction.
If Dybala must decide between joining United and Spurs, the Londoners have the advantage of being able to offer Champions League football. What’s more, Levy appears to be keen to pay Juventus what they want.
Italian outlet Tuttosport, as relayed by Sport Witness, reports that Levy is ready to make an offer in the region of £72-81 million for Dybala, which would surely tempt them into selling the Argentinian to Tottenham.
We’ll be eagerly anticipating further updates. Dybala to Spurs would certainly be one of the stories of the summer.
