Confusion over whether Dybala to Spurs transfer to go through

There are mixed reports as to whether Argentine forward Paulo Dybala's move to Tottenham Hotspur is off after it was believed Juventus decided they wanted to keep the 25-year-old.

Spurs had been believed to be in advanced talks with the Serie A champions for the services of Dybala. But it is reported that the supposed €75 million (£69 million) deal is off, with Juventus reportedly not willing to let him go until they get a replacement.

Dybala joined Juventus in June 2015 from fellow Italian club Palermo for a deal worth up to €40 million. In his time with The Old Lady, he has made 182 appearances for the club in all competitions and getting himself 78 goals in the process.

Tottenham Hotspur are expected to complete the signings today of full-back Ryan Sessegnon from Fulham for around €32.5 million, as well as Real Betis' Giovani Lo Celso.

However, there is now confusion as to his future, with the Independent in the UK reporting that the deal is not dead, and a dispute over image rights means the deal "hanging by a thread".

Dybala has been linked with a move away from The Old Lady throughout the summer - initially to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's Manchester United. However, that deal died last week due to the Argentinian's wage demands. The transfer was originally involving Romelu Lukaku to swap for life in Turin.

Now, the Belgian international Lukaku is in Milan completing a medical. His swap to Inter is worth €80 million. The boss at the San Siro, Antonio Conte has been quoted numerous times throughout the summer about his interest in Lukaku.

"I understand there are some gaps that need to be filled, but at the moment I'm very hopeful this will happen," said Conte last week. "I'm sure Lukaku is a good player and a striker in the past I tried to buy when I was Chelsea's coach."
