In a huge blow to Spurs fans, Paulo Dybala’s protracted move from Juventus to Tottenham is now off.

The BBC’s David Ornstein broke the news, reporting that Juventus ultimately decided against selling the 25-year-old forward.

This is just another twist in the summer tale of Dybala, with The Old Lady previously happy to sell a player who they deemed to be surplus to requirements at The Juventus Stadium – to the extent that the club even offered the former Palermo man to Manchester United as part of their attempts to sign Romelu Lukaku from the Red Devils.

Only this morning it was reported that a £65 million deal had been agreed to bring Dybala to a Spurs side looking to push on and challenge Manchester City and Liverpool for the Premier League crown.

In some better news for Spurs fans, fellow Argentinian Giovani lo Celso has recently arrived in London as Tottenham look to finalise a £55 million deal for the Real Betis playmaker.

Additionally, a £25 million move for Fulham’s Ryan Sessegnon is expected to be completed by the time the transfer window closes at 5pm today – while a £30 million move for Nice right-back Youcef Atal has also been mooted.
