Tottenham have held talks with Juventus over a sensational swoop to sign world-class forward Paulo Dybala, according to Football London.
The Argentine has seen his form suffer since the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo last summer and he could leave the Old Lady.
It is thought that Juve may be willing to do business for around £80 million and Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino is a long-term admirer of the player.
Dybala was recently part of the Argentina side that finished third in the Copa America and has 23 caps for his country.
His club form has taken a hit, however. Last season he netted just 10 goals and registered five assists in 42 appearances.
The season previous Dybala scored 26 goals playing largely in the number 10 role but Ronaldo’s arrival saw him play in a number of different positions.
If Spurs can pull off such a huge transfer it would send out a big message to their Premier League rivals.
Pochettino led his side to the Champions League Final last season and he will want to ensure that sparkling run is just the start.
Dybala is perhaps the signing that Spurs needs in order to challenge regularly for major honours.
His arrival would certainly delight the club’s supporters. Many of them have taken to Twitter and here is a selection of tweets in reaction to Tottenham’s link to Dybala:
Do it Levy

Lloris, Toby, Jan, Sessegon, Serge
Erikson, Ndombele, Ali, Le Celo
Kane & Dybala & a decent bench for a change. We winning everything..grand national ain’t even safe

If Levy pulls that one off I will never doubt him again!

Why don’t we straight swap for Eriksen, and then bring in Lo Celso and Sessegnon. We could always do rose and eriksen and possibly get Dybala and maybe £5-10 million?

@LucaHargreaves this would be just silly if it happen… very unspursy

Dybala under Poch will be better than Eriksen

He truly is world class and he scores goals, perfect for Pochettino. This is a no-brainer, he takes Spurs to a new level. Would love Lo Celso aswell. But Dybala is incredible. Would be a magnificent signing. If Eriksen isn’t signing a new contract, we have to sell and replace.

He would be a great signing. Sending Eriksen the other way would be the best thing. If we add Dybala and Lo Celso we would have an incredible squad.
