Tottenham Hotspur are being linked with a sensational swoop for Juventus forward Paulo Dybala.
According to The Evening Standard, Spurs have now made contract with the Italian giants having been weighing up an approach for ‘over three weeks’.
The Bianconeri value the Argentina ace at £80 million, meaning Spurs would have to break their transfer record for a second time this summer to get him.
Juve are apparently prepared to listen to offers for the £120,000-a-week star, who has suffered somewhat as a result of the club signing Cristiano Ronaldo.
A move is said to be highly ambitious, but one Spurs believe could happen in the next two weeks.
One man who should be worried about the links, is Dele Alli.
Alli’s best position is playing just in behind Harry Kane.
At times, he is often right up there with and beyond his England teammate, and these are the kind of positions Dybala likes to occupy.
He didn’t have the best 2018/19, but Dybala is a player of serious quality and at 25, he still has some developing to do. Under his compatriot Mauricio Pochettino, he could become frightening.
If Spurs can somehow manage to do a deal, then Alli’s first-team opportunities will surely become limited, especially if Christian Eriksen stays.
Surprisingly, Alli has not really kicked on at Spurs since winning the PFA Young Player of the Year award in both 2015/16 and 2016/17.
Last term was arguably his poorest since joining the club, and links to Dybala – and Giovani Lo Celso for that matter – should alarm the attacker.
