Fabrizio Romano has dropped an update on the future of reported Tottenham Hotspur transfer target Paulo Dybala.
In a recent post on Twitter, the Italian journalist revealed that, despite a number of reports to the contrary, Tottenham are not currently in talks with the 28-year-old regarding a move to north London ahead of the 2022/23 campaign, nor have they been at any point this summer.
In his tweet, the transfer insider said: “Nothing has changed on Tottenham side: they’re not in talks to sign Paulo Dybala as of today – and he’s never been considered a serious target. Spurs want different players.”
Recent reports have claimed that Dybala is demanding an eye-watering £280k-per-week from a new suitor this summer. However, considering just how talented the Argentina international undoubtedly is, the news that Fabio Paratici and Antonio Conte are not planning on making a move for the former Juventus forward is sure to have left Spurs supporters gutted.
Indeed, over his 29 Serie A appearances this season, the £36m-rated attacker was in breathtaking form for the Bianconeri. He bagged 10 goals, provided five assists and created 11 big chances for his team-mates, in addition to taking 3.4 shots, making 1.3 key passes and completing 1.6 dribbles per game.
These metrics saw the £222k-per-week talent average a quite extraordinary SofaScore match rating of 7.43, ranking him not only as Massimiliano Allegri’s best performer in the league but also as the joint fourth-best player in the entire division.
As such, while the 28-year-old would certainly cost a pretty penny in wages, the prospect of adding Dybala’s sensational ability in the final third to the likes of Harry Kane, Dejan Kulusevski and Son Heung-min in the Tottenham attack is undoubtedly a mouthwatering one, with there being a very real argument that Argentine could be worth his hefty salary demands.
However, following Romano’s latest update, it seems as if a Spurs move for the versatile forward is not currently on the cards, which is sure to be a disappointing outcome for the Tottenham faithful.
