According to Corriere Dello Torino (via Inside Futbol), Tottenham are in talks with Maurizio Sarri to become their new manager, and the Italian would look to bring Paulo Dybala with him if he does move to Spurs.
Sarri wants Dybala
Jose Mourinho was sacked as Tottenham manager earlier this week, and Daniel Levy and co are now looking to replace him while Ryan Mason serves as interim boss.
Former Chelsea manager Sarri is seemingly on their radar, with Levy even said to be in regular contact with to the Italian. Now, these reports from Italy claim he loved working with Dybala in Turin and could demand his signing in north London, with the Argentine showing no signs of penning a new deal at Juventus.
Tottenham have been heavily linked with a move for the Argentina international in the past (The Guardian), so it is unsurprising to see him mentioned alongside them once again. It feels like Dybala has been around for years and years, but he is still only 27.
That may be because throughout his senior career, he has managed a whopping 120 goals (Transfermarkt), while Juve legend Alessandro Del Piero called him a “complete” player last year (via Forbes). For a player still just entering his prime, he has already proven so much at the elite level.
Would you want Sarri at Tottenham?
Dybala is currently valued at £54m (Transfermarkt) but, with just one more year left on his contract, his current club could be convinced to sell him. After all, he has made just 15 league appearances throughout the term.
Getting Sarri to join Tottenham may be the key to Levy finally bagging the striker he has long been looking to capture.
In other news, this Spurs man will reportedly leave the club this summer.
