Paulo Dybala is one of the brightest young stars in world football and Tottenham should do all they can to bring him to London.
Paulo Dybala is an explosive striker who would improve Spurs immeasurably
Tottenham Hotspur are a club on the rise, and with Mauricio Pochettino in charge the possibilities of how far the club can go are endless.
The 2016/17 season will see the return of Champions League football at White Hart Lane for the first time since 2011 when their heroic efforts ultimately ended in defeat to Real Madrid in the quarter-final.
To surpass their achievements from that season, the Spurs hierarchy must ensure that they fully support Pochettino financially in order for him to build sufficient squad depth.
The perfect signing for the North London club would be Juventus star Paulo Dybala. The 22-year-old Argentine has everything that Pochettino looks for in a player.
Dybala would add true class to the Spurs side
He has blistering pace over short distances and explosive power. He is technically superb with fantastic touch, vision and composure in front of goal. He is at an age where Pochettino can still mould him into the player he feels he can become, and his development would surely be enhanced working with a manager so heavily involved in the coaching side of the game.
Although the transition from Serie A to the Premier League would be a tough one for someone so young, having two Argentines in Pochettino and Eric Lamela would make the move to White Hart Lane that little bit easier.
With the club finally announcing the signing of Vincent Janssen via their official club website, they will be a lot stronger in the striking department. There is, however, still room for further improvement, and having three potentially world-class strikers will enable them to compete on all fronts.
Could Spurs tempt Juve into selling Dybala?
Dybala would bring them experience of playing at the highest level, despite his young age, and versatility that could be crucial come the last few months of the season when tired legs and injuries begin to take their toll. He is just as comfortable playing as an out-and-out striker as he is in the hole behind the main centre-forward. He is also proficient at playing wide on the left, and has a penchant for cutting inside, similar to the style of Arsenal legend Thierry Henry.
He managed 19 goals and nine assists in 34 Serie A appearances for Juventus last term in what was his first season with the club.
The Argentine has frightening amounts if potential, so would not come cheap, but if a move came to fruition, he could be exactly the sort of statement signing that Tottenham need to take them to a new level entirely, and help usher in a new era of success at White Hart Lane.
Dybala has every attribute that Mauricio Pochettino looks for in a player
