Tottenham Hotspur Yet to Begin Talks for Free Agent Dybala

An Elite Free Agent on the Market

Dybala is set to depart the Turin club in the summer after the two parties failed to reach a contractual agreement to keep him at the club. Since joining Juventus in 2015 from Palermo, Dybala has established himself as a solid attacking option in both Serie A and on the Champions League stage with his goal-scoring ability as well as his creativity.

In a seven-year spell at Juventus, the 28-year-old collected a number of accolades with the European giants winning the Scudetto five times, four Italian Cups, as well as three Italian Super Cups. Dybala’s best season in the famous black and white came in 2017/18, registering 33 goal involvements in 46 games – 26 goals and seven assists across all competitions that year.

At the time of writing, the centre-forward has 15 goals and six assists this season, and although not as impressive as 2017/18, there is still an obvious knack in the final third in a Juventus side that has experienced managerial transitions and the loss of Cristiano Ronaldo. With his football CV so far, an option to buy a player of Dybala’s calibre on a free is a mouth-watering prospect.

Champions League Prospect Could Boost Spurs’ Hopes

It has been known for some time that Spurs have been long-term admirers of the Argentine attacker but the increasingly likely potential for Conte’s side to qualify for next year’s Champions League could be a genuine pull factor for Dybala.

Following their North-London derby victory over Arsenal and Newcastle United’s 2-0 setback of the Gunners on Monday, Champions League football is Tottenham’s to lose heading into the final day of the Premier League season. If they can as much as avoid defeat to Norwich City with their superior goal difference, a European place will be secured, which will inevitably lead to more leverage in attracting quality players in the Summer. Dybala could certainly be one.

With Dybala set to depart, a Spurs move could prove tempting with the pull of Antonio Conte who is a clear admirer of the player. Also, the prospect of an already potent attack in Harry Kane and Son Heung-min adopting Dybala into the dynamic is certainly an exciting one.
