Tottenham Hotspur continue to be linked with Paulo Dybala by the Italian media, as the Argentine looks for a new club after Juventus made it clear he can leave for free.

The Turin club lowered the renewal offer they made to the player, and when the new amount wasn’t accepted they decided it was best to part ways. Since then, multiple clubs have been linked and Spurs have been pulled into the picture with some insistence.

Whilst Dybala would be available for zero transfer fee, there’s the question of high wages and potentially big commission. There’s also the issue of how long a contract Tottenham would want to offer, given the South American turns 29-years-of-age in November.

Italian journalist Giancarlo Padovan has again mentioned Antonio Conte’s side as being in the running, and also sent a dig towards Juventus for how they dealt with the renewal situation.

Quoted by Tutto Napoli, he said: “Dybala? There’s Inter, and Tottenham are on him, Barcelona could be. He is associated with high-level teams. Juve behaved badly with Dybala, the agreement at Christmas was €8m, plus €2m in bonuses. It’s not a great thing to shake hands with the agent and the player and then change your mind.”

That €8m figure is likely to be after tax, which shows just how much Spurs would need to spend.
