Spurs have reportedly approached Juventus about bringing Paulo Dybala to the Premier League (Evening Standard).
However, the Serie A side value the 25-year-old at £80million – a price which if met by the Lilywhites would break their transfer record for the second time this summer.
With that being said though, he struggled to find his form during the 2018/19 campaign and finished the season on just five goals and five assists in 30 league appearances.
You have to question the future of Christian Eriksen and Danny Rose if Spurs’ interest in Dybala is legitimate, particularly when you consider the club must meet the requirements of Financial Fair Play.
So, considering Pochettino has already spent over £60m on Ndombele and Jack Clarke, coupled with the fact that they are closing in on Giovani Lo Celso (according to The Sun), the Dybala deal could take their spending for the summer over the £190m mark.
Under the proviso that Lo Celso and Dybala arrive at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, the sales of Rose for £20m and Eriksen for £70m would likely take Spurs back to within £80m of breaking even this summer.
That would seem the only possible way they can afford to secure the Argentine’s mega deal in what would be a drastic change in the Spurs squad.
Tottenham fans, could signing Dybala push the likes of Eriksen and Rose out of the exit door? Join the discussion by commenting below!Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more Tottenham notifications!
