Arsenal plotting move for South American No.10 forward

By | June 13, 2022

Tottenham have rejected the chance to add Juventus attacker Paulo Dybala after baulking at his £280,000-a-week wage demands. Argentina international is available on a free transfer after announcing that he will not be extending his deal at Bianconeri, who he joined in 2015.

Paulo was a target for Tottenham and Man United in 2019, with both teams exploring a deal for the attacker into the final hours of the summer transfer window. Dybala ended up staying at Juventus, but he’s now open to moving to England, with Antonio Conte known to be a fan.

Arsenal and Man United are similarly disinterested, despite both admiring the 28-year-old attacker’s quality. Arsenal’s failure to make the top four means they have had to scale back their transfer plans.

Inter Milan are now leading the chase for the Argentine forward, though they’re only willing to give the attacker nearly £260,000-a-week before tax. However, Tottenham, who had the strongest interest in the South American attacker out of the English teams, have turned down the chance to add him because of his wage demands.

The Argentine would break Tottenham’s wage structure, making him the highest paid player at the club above Kane. As far as the footballer is concerned, he has already fully agreed on terms with Inter Milan and is only waiting for them to make their formal offer when they are set to get the deal over the line.
