According to TalkSport, Chelsea will have to ward off competition from Barcelona for Juventus star Paulo Dybala.
Dybala is believed to be in contract negotiations with the Serie A champions, but that has not stopped potential suitors from chasing his signature.
Antoine Conte is purported to be a huge fan of the Argentinian forward, and is said to see him as a potential replacement for China-bound Diego Costa.
Dybala’s craft and guile would complement a Chelsea forward line of Eden Hazard and Pedro.
However, reports in Spain now suggest Barcelona are seeking his services.
Possible long-term replacement
The Barca hierarchy are looking for long-term replacements for Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi and feel Dybala’s playing style mirrors that at the Camp Nou.
Even if Dybala is brought in as a potential replacement for Suarez and Messi, a front four of Messi, Suarez, Neymar and Dybala would petrify defences.
However, Juventus are willing to offer their star player a hefty pay-rise and hand him the legendary no.10 shirt.
