It appears very much as though Tottenham Hotspur's potential move for Paulo Dybala is off.

BBC Sport's David Ornstein reported Juventus have decided not to sell the attacker. 

Former Tottenham captain Graham Roberts reacted on Twitter to the developments.

In a conversation, Roberts said he was not surprised the deal appears to not be going ahead.

The move was already complicated by the need for a large transfer fee, big wages, and complicated image rights.

Gazzetta dello Sport offer some hope, insisting Juventus still might be open to a move, but logistically it is tough.

Dybala is still in Italy and there are under five hours to go before the deadline passes.

This one is likely to end up as no more than a pipe dream.
