Tottenham Hotspur remain interested in a deal for Paulo Dybala this summer.
That’s according to a report by Italian media outlet Tuttomercatoweb (via Sport Witness), who claim that, despite Inter Milan looking to be nearing a deal for the Juventus forward, both Tottenham and AS Roma are said to be keeping a very close eye on the situation of the 28-year-old ahead of a potential late move.
The report goes on to state that Fabio Paratici – who signed the Argentina international for Juve back in the summer of 2015 – is said to have explicitly expressed his interest in the attacker, while Roma are also said to be sending continuous signals to the player’s representatives regarding their own interest in a deal.
While it would appear as if Paratici will very much have his work cut out if he is to steal Dybala from Inter’s grasp this summer, should the Italian manage to pull off a late move for the 28-year-old, it would undoubtedly be an unreal signing for Tottenham.
Indeed, over his 29 Serie A appearances in 2021/22, the £31.5m-rated forward was in breathtaking form for Simone Inzaghi’s side, scoring 10 goals, providing five assists and creating 11 big chances for his teammates, in addition to taking an average of 3.4 shots, making 1.3 key passes and completing 1.6 dribbles per fixture.
These metrics saw the £225k-per-week talent who James Horncastle dubbed “unreal” average a quite astonishing SofaScore match rating of 7.43, not only ranking him as the Bianconeri’s best performer in the league but also as the joint fourth-best player in the division as a whole.
As such, the prospect of Dybala linking up with the likes of Son Heung-min, Dejan Kulusevski and Harry Kane in the Tottenham attack next season will undoubtedly be an extremely tantalising one for supporters and Antonio Conte alike, while we believe that, should Paratici indeed pull off a swoop for the Argentine, it would be one of the signings of the summer.
