Juventus are reportedly mulling over the possibility of offering Paulo Dybala as part of a deal to sign Tottenham striker Harry Kane this summer.
Jose Mourinho’s men crashed out of the Champions League at the hands of RB Leipzig last week, having already been eliminated from both domestic cups, while they currently sit a disappointing eighth in the Premier League.
And Juve chiefs are said to be looking to capitalise on the current turmoil in north London to secure a major summer coup – although they are aware that they will face major competition for Kane.

Tuttosport adds that Kane will cost the reigning Serie A champions €150m but that the price could be slashed if they offer former Spurs target Dybala as part of the deal.
The report says that Dybala’s stock will have risen since being valued at around €62m (£55.8m) in last summer’s transfer window after rejecting a move to north London.

Eze, who moved to QPR in 2016, broke into the first team last season with four goals and four assists in 42 Championship appearances, but he has come to life this term.
Twelve goals and eight assists have seen his stock rise enormously, with previous reports claiming that Tottenham are seriously interested and are in pole position for his signature. Read more…
