Tottenham Hotspur have been strongly linked with Paulo Dybala.

According to Sky Sports, Juventus forward Paulo Dybala is keen to fight for his place with the club amid links to Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur.

Dybala, 25, was a star in the 2017-18 season with 22 Serie A goals, but struggled after the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo, hitting just five goals and four assists last season.

The Argentinian is now being linked with a move away from Juve, and two Premier League clubs appear to be leading the pursuit for his signature.

Firstly, Sky Sports claimed that Juve were willing to offer Dybala in a bid for Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku, whilst the London Evening Standard note that Tottenham Hotspur are hoping to secure him in a bold move.

However, it’s now claimed that Dybala wants to ignore the interest from both teams in order to stay in Turin and fight for his place under new boss Maurizio Sarri.

Dybala has already proven what an incredible talent he can be, but his role appeared to change once Ronaldo signed – and it’s unclear just where he’d play under Sarri.

Sarri sticks rigidly to a 4-3-3, and Dybala’s ideal role – as a number 10 – doesn’t exist in that system, he’s not exactly natural down the right flank and hopes of turning him into a striker, a la Dries Mertens under Sarri, is hard to see with Ronaldo in the mix.

Spurs and United should keep tabs on the situation in case he finds first-team football hard to come by under Sarri, but a move before the transfer deadline in less than two weeks seems unlikely now.
