Monday’s edition of France Football claimed Chelsea and Tottenham are interested in signing Paulo Dybala in the summer transfer window.
The Juventus player was valued at €55-60m despite his contract expiring at the end of next season.
Those claims have inevitably been picked up in Italy, where Calciomercato concentrate on Chelsea and take things a little further. The Italian football media love the idea of exchange deals, so that is brought into the picture.
It’s claimed the Blues could use one of their own players to hugely bring the transfer fee down. One idea is Jorginho, who has been repeatedly linked with Juventus and other Serie A clubs in recent years.
Calciomercato believe Chelsea would only have to add around €10m to the midfielder to get Dybala. Timo Werner and Christian Pulisic are also mentioned, with the pair valued at €62m and €45m respectively.
All of this depends on Chelsea’s interest being concrete, yet we’re surely all going to hear a lot more about Dybala in the coming months. Currently out with a knee injury, there’s been no concrete push for a renewal and that will encourage rumours ahead of the summer.
