Roma striker Paulo Dybala is reportedly a target for Tottenham Hotspur in January.
A report from Fichajes claims that clubs like Manchester United, Chelsea and Newcastle are keen on the player and the north London club now ‘joins the bidding’ for the experienced attacker.
Ange Postecoglou is looking to improve his attacking options and Dybala’s versatility has caught their attention. The Argentine international is capable of operating as an attacking midfielder, a winger as well a centre forward.
He has four goals and six assists to his name across all competitions this season and he could prove to be an upgrade on players like Richarlison. In addition to that, Son Heung-min has had to carry the goal-scoring burden for Tottenham this season and Dybala would be a quality alternative.
The South Korean international will be away during the AFC Asian Cup and Spurs need someone to step up and fill the void in that time. It will be interesting to see if Tottenham decide to trigger the attacker’s modest exit clause in the coming days.
Dybala has a €13 million exit clause in his contract and he could prove to be a major bargain at that price. It remains to be seen whether Tottenham can beat the competition from their Premier League rivals and secure his signature.
The 30-year-old World Cup winner has proven his quality in Italian football over the years and he could be tempted to try out a new challenge now. The opportunity to move to the Premier League could be an attractive proposition for him.
He is at the peak of his powers right now and he could look to test himself at the highest level and compete for major trophies with Tottenham in the coming seasons.
