Tottenham Hotspur have rejected the chance to sign Paulo Dybala from Juventus, per Calciomercato.
Reports suggest that they could also sign Giovani Lo Celso from Real Betis along with Fulham teenager Ryan Sessegnon.
But Calciomercato suggests that they have snubbed the opportunity to bid for Dybala.
Manchester United, Bayern Munich and PSG are said to be interested in the attacking midfielder, who has made 182 appearances for Juve, though Manchester City have mimicked Spurs’ stance by opting against submitting an offer.
Spurs are missing a major opportunity here.
Now, of course, we do not know how much Dybala would cost in this current inflated transfer market but how often is he going to be offered to you on a silver platter?

He is an established Argentina international, a superstar in Serie A, a proven goalscorer – he has scored 78 goals for the club – and he would instantly improve Tottenham.
The club have not signed a truly bonafide superstar since Rafael van der Vaart joined the club from Real Madrid.
Since then, they have decided to make their own, bringing in youngsters who they can mould and improve themselves.
But if Dybala is available, they should have gone for him; it would have been another statement of intent following the signing of Ndombele, a world-class player arriving at Hotspur Way as the club look to finally end that trophy drought that stretches back to 2008.
Instead, it seems they will have to watch on as he decides his future, and that’s a crying shame.
