The forward group at Tottenham Hotspur could see some more improvement this summer, and there are plenty of names circulating as to who will help Harry Kane with the goal-scoring on the squad.
While there are plenty of rumored candidates, there’s one name that won’t be coming to north London. According to TuttoMercatoWeb (via Express), Spurs will no longer go after Paulo Dybala despite the connection with Managing Director of Football Fabio Paratici.
The reason for this reported decision on Dybala is due to the form of Kulusevski, who looks set to sign for Tottenham permanently in a £25-million move at the end of his loan.
Although Spurs are reportedly pulling themselves from pursuing Dybala, they are eyeing Paris Saint-Germain midfielder, Leandro Paredes. Furthermore, a recent report from L’Equipe (via Paris Fans) reveals that PSG is open to letting the 27-year-old depart.
The French media outlet adds Tottenham has expressed an interest in Paredes, who could be looking to leave if the midfielder feels that he won’t get the playing time to prepare for the World Cup later this year.
Anywhere but back here
Ajax seemed keen on Bergwijn ..though their coach is leaving so that may change ..not sure how much we would fetch for Lucas 15 mil.
Thinking about Ajax ..that would be a great job for Poch..
The option to sign him at a later date remains..quite handy I reckon which allows more time to evaluate. Not really concerned about Dyabala..picking up a number of injuries, was quality in his pomp.Surely Paratici can look further afield than Juve..is Dybala on a free.…
Dont see many coming in tbf ..Daniel I’m in Charge Levy will be showing who is Boss/is unable to shift the deadwood at an acceptable price..
I think the summer is going to be combustible.
Egg on face and spoon
As were Kane and Son. My point is that you can’t really say he only really shone against weak opposition, especially as he played just a couple of games, one of which was against one of the best teams in the world.
Kulu has done well, certainly more productive than Steve B and Moura, I’d move both of them on to make way for Dybala. How often do either of them play anyway?
Race? What race?
Snuffed out by Brighton though..
To be fair, getting 1+1 against City in their own back yard is not to be sniffed at.
If true this is the reason we don’t win trophies – only one good player in each position. Lets face it it’s early days for Kulu and he’s only really shone against weak opposition too. I think it’s more likely Levy doesn’t want to pay Dybala’s wages than anything else!
If true in legitimate pursue and not just rumor stirring nonsense, that would be a shame especially weighting Kulu talent to Dyabala. Dejan is not in the class of Dyabala as yet. Get him for 2 to 3 years on the free would have made a difference. Here is a guy that can take the dead ball, play on either wing, as a #10, and not bad as a part time #8. That kind of versatility if fit should not be passed up. Paredes is a holding mid, and we would need to sell to acquire him as there are log jam at the position. Again, if this was a real pursuit on a free transfer and we are the ones making the decision to end it, it is a big mistake. I do not care where he ends up, but we would miss a great talent.
