Juventus attacker Dybala

According to reports, Paulo Dybala ‘will leave’ Juventus for free this summer amid interest from Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur.

Liverpool and Spurs are among the Premier League teams interested in the Argentinian.

The 28-year-old signed for Juventus in 2015 from their Serie A rivals Palermo for around €40m.

Dybala has consistently been a standout player for Juventus over the past seven seasons. He has played over 200 times for them in Serie A.

The forward’s future at Juventus has been in doubt in recent months as his contract is set to expire in June.

Respected journalist Fabrizio Romano has now revealed via Twitter that Dybala ‘will leave’ Juventus this summer.

He states that the two parties had a ‘full verbal agreement’ over a new deal but this changed when the club ‘changed their plans’.

Dybala is ‘not happy’ with his situation and he will now ‘open talks with other clubs’ ahead of his exit.

Elsewhere, according to David Ornstein, Arsenal and Liverpool are among the clubs to step up their interest in Cody Gakpo after PSV Eindhoven agree that he can leave for the right price this summer.

It was first reported in the January transfer window that Liverpool and Manchester City were interested in Gakpo, who has played 125 times for PSV at the age of 22.

Gakpo has contributed eight goals and 13 assists in just 20 Eredivisie appearances this campaign with a further eight goals coming in other competitions.

There were reports at the end of January that indicated Arsenal were lining up a £25m bid for the Netherlands international but one Dutch journalist claimed that would not be enough to “even have a cup of coffee” with the Eredivisie side.

And now The Athletic journalist Ornstein insists that although there is no release clause in Gakpo’s contract, ‘an understanding was formed to ensure that if suitable offers land this summer, PSV will cooperate with the process’.

The Athletic add: ‘That has led admirers such as the likes of Arsenal, Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Liverpool to accelerate their interest and hold serious conversations about pushing for the Dutch attacker.’

It is understood that PSV are looking for ‘a fee in the region of €35million to €50million’ for one of their prized assets.
