Chelsea have £60m Paulo Dybala advantage over Arsenal and Spurs with Juventus transfer proposal

Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham are all chasing the signature of Paulo Dybala this summer with the Juventus forward set to become a free agent at the end of the season. The Blues are looking to bolster their attacking threat after another lacklustre season in front of goal and the Argentinian is seen as a potential solution.

Romelu Lukaku was signed during the summer transfer window for £97 million but has only mustered eight Premier League goals this season with Thomas Tuchel once against trailing Manchester City and Liverpool by some distance in the title race. Dybala could represent a bargain when it comes to strengthening this summer.

Chelsea were reportedly offered the opportunity to sign Dybala on a pre-contract agreement in February, along with Arsenal and Spurs, according to 90Min . For now, he remains unattached but did confirm his imminent departure in a recent farewell message on Twitter.

"It is difficult to find the right words to greet you, there are many years and many emotions involved, all together," the Argentina international wrote. "I thought we would be together even more years, but fate puts us on different paths.

"I will never forget everything you made me experience, every game, every goal. With you I grew up, I learned, I lived and I dreamed. It has been 7 years of magic, 12 trophies and 115 goals that no one will take away from us. Never. Thank you for supporting me in difficult times.

"Thanks to those who have accompanied me over the years: from the first to the last, from the fans to the people who work within the club, everyone, coaches and teammates, employees and managers. Wearing this important jersey along with the captain's armband has been one of the greatest pride of my life, which I hope to show to my children and grandchildren one day.

"Tomorrow will be my last match with this shirt, it's hard to imagine, but it will be our last goodbye. It will not be easy, but I will enter the field with a smile and my head held high, knowing that I have given everything for you."

Attention will now turn to his next destination. But Chelsea could hold a crucial advantage over their rivals. Juventus have previously been linked with a move for Christian Pulisic, a player they believe could replace Dybala in Turin, as reported by ESPN.

It could therefore be far easier for Chelsea to offer guaranteed game time to the 28-year-old if Pulisic, who is valued at £60 million by the CIES Observatory, is moved to Juventus.

It is something that could also offer Dybala himself peace of mind, knowing he is not leaving his former employers in a dire situation, and compound the league advantage Chelsea already have over their London rivals.
