According to Italian outlet Corriere dello Sport, via Sport Witness, Tottenham Hotspur have made an enquiry to Juventus over Serie A star Paulo Dybala – with the report touting a possible swap deal between the two clubs.
Spurs make Dybala enquiry
Providing the latest, Corriere dello Sport (via Sport Witness) claim Spurs have made an enquiry for the £225,000-per-week Argentine but any proposed agreement would have to come in the form of a swap.
Indeed, the Old Lady are allegedly fully aware that they will not be receiving ‘cash only’ offers amid the financial uncertainty caused by coronavirus – with this report touting a possible swap deal as a solution.
Corriere don’t state who could make way from Spurs to bring Dybala to north London, but a swap ‘could arrange the situations both in the bank accounts and on the pitch’.
Transfer Tavern take
While Spurs very publicly tried to sign Dybala in 2019, with the transfer falling through due to a complicated image rights issue, we believe that a move for him now could be illogical from a financial perspective.
Even if a swap could be arranged, the 27-year-old’s sky high reported wages could turn chairman Daniel Levy off.
There is still no doubting his ability despite the absences over 2020/2021 , with the forward still averaging an impressive 2.5 shots and 1.6 key passes per 90 over eight Serie A starts this season (WhoScored).
Italian footballing icon Alessandro Del Piero has lauded him as ‘extraordinary’ (talkSPORT), meanwhile fellow former international Daniele Adani very recently claimed Dybala is still Juve’s ‘most important player’ (Sky Sports via TuttoJuve).
However, amid these circumstances and with the need to invest wisely more paramount than ever, Tottenham signing a much needed leader at the back arguably takes precedent.
