Tottenham would be getting a “phenomenal player” if they signed Juventus attacker Paul Dybala in January.
That is according to former Spurs and England number one Paul Robinson, speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs about the prospect of the 27-year-old arriving in north London next year.
According to Spanish outlet Todo Fichajes, Jose Mourinho has identified the Argentina international, who is valued at £64million, as his main target for the January window.
Dybala to Sky Sport: “I’ve always said that I want to stay. I love Juventus, I love this club… but there are lot of fake news about my contract. My agent was in Turin for few weeks and no one from the club called him [to negotiate]”

Dybala has been in and out of the Juventus side this season and has only scored one goal in his 12 appearances across all competitions.
He has been strongly linked with a move to the Lilywhites before, in particular when fellow Argentinian Mauricio Pochettino was in charge of the club.
When asked by Football Insider for his thoughts on the potential arrival of Dybala in 2021, Robinson said:
“Listen, Mourinho has an impact on players and transfers and the longer Tottenham are at the top of the Premier League the more attractive a proposition they become.
“They already have the likes of Harry Kane, Gareth Bale and Reguilon there so Spurs are a very attractive proposition for any top player. They are a different proposition in the transfer market so players like Dybala will be interested in Spurs.
“He is a phenomenal player but where does he fit in? You would be bolstering a squad that is already strong.
“Dele Alli has struggled to get in the team this season so it is about strengthening wisely.”
