Mauricio Pochettino set his sights on Juventus forward as he aspires to stamp his authority at Paris Saint-Germain in the coming months.
As Mauricio Pochettino settles into his new job as Paris Saint-Germain manager, there is a renewed sense of hope and ambition in the French club. Les Parisians surpassed Lyon and occupied the first spot on the Ligue 1 table and are gearing up for a Champions League tie against Barcelona next month.
With the French club entering into the business end of the season, the Ligue 1 champions are expected to strengthen their ranks as they plot their next move. According to Todo Fichajes, Paris Saint-Germain are looking to acquire Paulo Dybala from Juventus in the coming weeks.
Dybala, 27, has entered into the final 18 months of his current contract with the Bianconeri and could be looking to extend his contract with the Serie A champions. However, recent reports suggest that Juventus are yet to convince the Argentine attacker for an extension
Pochettino has been a long time admirer of the former Palermo attacker since his tenure with Tottenham Hotspur. With a better team he boasts a higher chance of succeeding at recruiting his compatriot.
But Paris Saint-Germain could face a stern test from top European clubs such as Real Madrid, Manchester United, and Chelsea. Manchester United are expected to offer a swap deal including the French star, Paul Pogba. The World Cup winner has failed to meet the demands of the club and is reportedly looking for a fresh start at a new club.
Appearing 16 times this season, the Argentine has managed three goals and two assists in all competitions for the Bianconeri. La Joya has been an integral part of the Serie A champions since he arrived from Palermo in 2015, and Juventus could do everything in their power to retain the 27-year-old for seasons to come.
