Tottenham Hotspur have contacted Serie A champions Juventus about a possible deal for Paulo Dybala, according to a report in England.

The Evening Standard is reporting that Spurs are ready to break their club transfer record for the second time this summer if a swoop for Dybala is a genuine possibility.

The same article states that the Italian champions are thought to be open to offers this summer after Cristiano Ronaldo’s arrival last year.

According to the same story, Juve would consider selling Dybala if the Turin side received an offer in the region of £80m.

The Evening Standard add that Tottenham are confident that a deal can be reached between all three parties before the Premier League’s transfer deadline on 11 August.

The report continues that Spurs could afford Dybala’s £110,000-a-week wages given that Harry Kane and Dele Alli are currently paid more than the Argentinian.

Tottenham will need to act fast to get a deal for Dybala over the line considering that Spurs have been contemplating a swoop for the South American over the past three weeks.

The north London side have already broken their transfer record this summer with the £65m signing of Tanguy Ndombele from Ligue 1 side Lyon.

Spurs lost 2-0 to Liverpool FC in the Champions League final last term.
