Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly ‘made contact’ with Paulo Dybala’s representatives ahead of a possible move to the Premier League this summer, according to ESPN journalist James Olley.

The 28-year-old, who currently plays for Juventus, did hold talks with the Lilywhites back in 2019 when Mauricio Pochettino was in charge, but they failed to reach an agreement before the transfer deadline due to issues with his image rights.
The striker is expected to leave the Serie A giants when his contract expires at the end of the current season though, and with four Premier League clubs said to be interested in his services, the chances of him staying in Italy beyond this campaign are now highly unlikely.
The Latest: ‘Made contact’
ESPN reporter Olley took to Twitter to confirm that Tottenham, Arsenal, Manchester United, and Newcastle have all ‘made contact’ with Dybala’s team, though it’s believed that nothing is yet at an advanced stage.
Expanding in an article for ESPN, it’s claimed that Antonio Conte has ‘identified’ the 32-time international as an ideal target, ahead of his squad overhaul in preparation for the start of the new term.
The Verdict: Perfect target
If the opportunity arises for Spurs to sign the forward, then it’s an absolute no-brainer of a deal to try and get over the line.
Once hailed for having an “extraordinary” technique by his former Palermo teammate Stefano Sorrentino, Dybala would be a wonderful option to have up top alongside the likes of Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min, and if the Italian boss can secure his signature, he could play a huge part in helping the north London outfit achieve a top four spot next year or even better.
