Tottenham Hotspur have signed quite a few Arsenal fans over the years and they may just be on the verge of doing the same again with Paulo Dybala.

The 28-year has been a star in Italy and is closing in on completing his seventh year at Juventus. He has played 283 times for the Bianconeri and has directly been involved in 161 goals in all competitions.

He has been one of the best players in the Serie A for years now, but it looks like his time in Turin is coming to an end.

Fabrizio Romano revealed this week that Dybala will leave as a free agent in the summer, while Corriere dello Sport claimed that Tottenham are more interested in the Argentine now than ever before.

Reports have revealed that along with Tottenham, Arsenal are also interested in signing Dybala.

BBC journalist Rory Smith even claimed this week that he feels the Gunners are the likeliest club to land the Argentine, who will be available on a free transfer in a few months’ time.

If Arsenal’s reported interest in genuine, they may have an edge over their fierce North London rivals.

Back in May 2015, Dybala was pictured holding Mesut Ozil’s Arsenal shirt which led many to believe that that the Juventus superstar is a Gooner.

Another Gooner at Spurs?

It is a well-known fact that Harry Kane was once an Arsenal fan. There are even pictures of the Englishman celebrating the Gunners’ title win back in 2004.

Serge Aurier, who spent four years at Tottenham, also supported Arsenal, as did Darren Bent, who donned a Spurs shirt for a couple of years.

Dybala, labelled as a ‘special talent‘ by Mauricio Pochettino, could well be the next Arsenal-supporting player to join Tottenham, which would open the door for some banter from Arsenal fans.

However, if Antonio Conte manages to sign the Argentine for free this summer, Spurs fans won’t care about Dybala’s picture from seven years ago.
