Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino could have three of the players who he believes are among the best in the world at White Hart Lane next season, if Spurs sign Paulo Dybala from Juventus.
The Argentine boss is a huge fan of Dybala, who scored against Tottenham in the Champions League during the 2017/18 campaign for Juve.
And after that game Pochettino said to Football London: "I put Dybala in that category [among the best in the world], because he is a special talent and seeing him on the pitch is wonderful, even if he might cause your team a few problems.”
If Dybala was to move to Spurs, Pochettino would seemingly be delighted.
Pochettino already has great belief in Tottenham’s squad, and is on record to suggest that both Harry Kane and Hugo Lloris are already in the same bracket as Dybala as players.
Pochettino raved about Kane in the Daily Mirror, saying: “Harry Kane is one of the best strikers in the world and we cannot hide that.”
More controversially, Pochettino also has said that Lloris is up there with the best goalkeepers on the planet.
“He's one of the best keepers in the world. There's no doubt. There's no doubt that Hugo is one of the best and he's going to be in the goal,” he told the London Evening Standard.
If Tottenham did now add Dybala, Pochettino may well believe that he has the tools at his disposal to make a title push.
Pochettino recently suggested that he would be happy with the squad provided to him by Daniel Levy at the end of the summer, which may just have hinted that he knew Spurs still had ambitious transfer plans.
And if Dybala did sign for Tottenham it could be the most momentous transfer that Spurs have made in the modern era.
