Spurs have agreed a deal to sign Juventus star Paulo Dybala, according to Sky Sport Italy.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side registered their interest in the Argentine a fortnight ago, but Manchester United soon emerged as frontrunners to sign the attacking midfielder.
However, with everything agreed, United pulled out of the deal, with the 13-times Premier League winners seemingly worried about Dybala’s desire to move to Old Trafford.
And now Tottenham, who are keen to bolster their attacking department, especially with Christian Eriksen looking likely to leave the club and their chances of buying Giovani Lo Ceslo slowly decreasing, are big favourites to sign Dybala and Gianluca Di Marzio, a highly regarded Italian reporter, is claiming that the Lilywhites have agreed a fee of around €70.
Spurs have quickly moved to odds on with the bookies (5/6) to make their third signing of the window, but this deal isn’t straight forward and is expected to go down the wire – with wages a potential stumbling block for the North London outfit.
