Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal will both have a lot of work to do in the summer transfer window when it comes to their strikers.
Spurs still haven’t brought in a new centre-forward, with Harry Kane currently the only senior player in that position.
Meanwhile, the Gunners could well find themselves without a single recognised senior striker to their name.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang left on deadline day, while Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah will be out of contract.
However, there could be an interesting solution on the horizon.
Paulo Dybala, one of the top forwards in world football, looks set to become a free agent in the summer.
According to 90Min, the Juventus star’s representatives have offered Tottenham and Arsenal the chance to sign him.
However, Spurs and the Gunners are far from the only Premier League clubs in the picture.
As well as Tottenham and Arsenal, Dybala’s representatives have also contacted Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea.
Sky Italia – via Football Italia – reported last month that Juve initially offered the 28-year-old a new contract.
However, they reportedly rescinded that offer, and then wanted Dybala to take a pay cut.
Now, 90Min claims Dybala now plans to leave Turin and his representatives are putting feelers out to a number of European clubs.
As well as the aforementioned Premier League clubs, Dybala’s camp has reportedly also contacted PSG and Inter
The player’s representatives are due to travel around Europe in the coming weeks with the hopes of brokering a move for the 28-year-old, added the report.
Tottenham and Arsenal could land player on Messi and Ronaldo level, but there’s fierce competition
Dybala – who can play in attacking midfield and up front – would be a major coup for both Tottenham and Arsenal.
Out of all the players whose contracts will soon run out, the £222,000-a-week is amongst the very best out there.
In 276 appearances for Juve, Dybala has registered 111 goals and 46 assists. He has also captained the team on several occasions.
Dybala’s CV is also very impressive – five Scudettos, four Italian Cups and three Italian Super Cups.
“I feel he has become a complete player,” Alessandro Del Piero said in 2020.
And Massimiliano Allegri, upon returning to Juve, said: “Only Messi and Cristiano are better than Dybala. He has the quality to win the Ballon d’Or.”
