Chelsea have made contact regarding Paulo Dybala, according to claims from Italy.

Journalist Rudy Galetti writes that whilst the striker waits to discuss a new contract with AS Roma, some clubs have been in touch to find about his situation.

Dybala’s deal with the Giallorossi currently expires in 2025, and there’s some uncertainty about a potential renewal at the club.

Galetti then claims that Chelsea, as well as Barcelona, ‘collected some preliminary info’ on Dybala and his current release clause.

Back in January, the Italian media revealed that the player had a €13m release clause, and not €20m, as previously reported. However, it stayed unclear if that amount was only valid for the winter transfer window or for the remainder of his contract.

Either way, with Roma pressed with the risk of losing him for free next year, there’s a good chance he could end up being a good deal for Chelsea or any other club who want to sign him. Playing for the Giallorossi this season, Dybala currently has 14 goals and nine assists in 31 appearances.
