Tottenham have made an approach to sign Paulo Dybala on a free transfer this summer, but the Argentine is not rushing into a decision on his future.
The Argentine is set to leave Juventus on a free transfer this summer when his contract comes to an end, with the Italian giants electing to abandon their efforts to get the forward to sign a new deal.
It leaves Dybala free to negotiate with clubs around Europe and decide his next step, and Tottenham are one of his options.
They are believed to be keen through Fabio Paratici, who signed Dybala for Juventus and was key to that move happening as well.
He has a relationship with the player could be key to Spurs hopes of pulling off a major deal, and, according to Alfredo Pedulla, an effort has been made.
According to him, Dybala received several ‘enquiries’ straight after Juventus’ announcement that he would be leaving the club, and one of those came from Tottenham.
At the moment, he has not responded to these, just ‘memorised’ them so they can be looked at on a later date.
For now, the 29-year-old is taking the situation calmly, knowing that he is about to sign the ‘most delicate and important contract’ of his career.
He wants ‘total security’ at his new club and wants to make the right decision rather than rushing into anything.
At this moment in time, he would prefer to stay in Italy, where he is happy, and so is waiting as long as he can to see if the possibility of a move to Inter Milan materialises.
He would also go to Spain if there was a good offer, although there are doubts about whether he would fit in at Atlético Madrid, who are his big suitors there.
At the moment, there is no rush to make a decision, but Tottenham have put themselves in line to try and pull off a deal and reunite Paratici with his former star.
