Tottenham should use said interest in Kieran Trippier to help sign Paulo Dybala

Juventus reportedly want to sign the Tottenham Hotspur defender.

Tottenham have a vitally important summer transfer window ahead of them.

Mauricio Pochettino will surely be looking to strengthen his squad, but there could very well be some high-profile outgoings too.

One Spurs player who has been linked with an exit this summer is Kieran Trippier, with Sky Sports reporting that Juventus are keen on signing the England international.

The 28-year-old has been in poor form this season, so losing him wouldn't be a disaster for Tottenham, and in fact, they could use Juve's interest in the full-back to their advantage.


One criticism often levelled at Spurs is their lack of an X-factor type player, especially when Harry Kane is out injured, and with this in mind, they should make a bold move for Paulo Dybala this summer, offering Trippier to Juve as part of the deal.

According to Italian media outlet Corriere dello Sport, the Old Lady are prepared to sell the 25-year-old this summer, but for nothing less than €100 million (£89 million).

That sort of fee would be well out of Tottenham's range, but including Trippier as part of the deal might just make it feasible for the north London outfit.

Dybala is well and truly one of the world's best forwards. He has racked up an impressive 78 goals and 31 assists in 182 appearances in all competitions for Juventus, and that kind of attacking output would undoubtedly take Tottenham to another level.

The Argentina international showed Spurs what he is capable of last season, scoring during their Champions League clash at Wembley, and should Pochettino manage to bring him to north London this summer, it could turn out to be a signing of real significance for Tottenham.
