Tottenham Hotspur could make a move to sign Paulo Dybala in January and are open to including Christian Eriksen as part of the deal, according to reports in Italy.

Italian outlet Tuttosport, as quoted by the Daily Express, is reporting that Spurs are eyeing a potential deal to bring Juventus playmaker Dybala to north London in the new year.

The same story says that Spurs were heavily linked with a move to sign Dybala in January but failed to agree a deal with Juventus and so the attacker stayed in Turin.

However, it is now being claimed that Mauricio Pochettino could make a fresh move to try and land Dybala in the January window as he looks to bolster his squad ahead of the second part of the campaign.

Eriksen’s future was a relentless source of speculation in the summer months but the playmaker ended up staying at the club beyond the close of the transfer window.

The Denmark international’s current contract at Tottenham is due to expire next summer, meaning that he will be able to speak to foreign clubs about a move in January.

Meanwhile, Tottenham are currently preparing for their home clash against Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Saturday.
