Chelsea Offered A Chance To Land This Serie A Forward: Should Tuchel Get Him On Board?

Must Read

A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

In a recent report, The Daily Star has claimed that Chelsea have been offered a chance to land Juventus forward Paulo Dybala, whose contract is set to expire at the end of next season. It is believed that the Blues would have to pay over £40m if they want to lure him away from the Allianz Stadium during the summer transfer window (via The Daily Star).

Dybala’s Underwhelming Season In Italy Because Of Injuries

Dybala’s season in Italian football has been disrupted by frequent injuries. However, to his credit, the Argentine sensation has done well to produce a few consistent displays for the Turin giants over the past eight months.

The Laguna Larga-born attacker has banged in three goals and provided two assists in 16 appearances for Juve this term across all fronts. The 27-year-old deserves some credit for averaging 2.6 shots, 1.8 key passes and 1.4 dribbles per game in this Serie A campaign. He has even been excellent when distributing possession in the final third, as evidenced by his pass success rate of 88% in the top tier of Italian football (stats via whoscored).

Maybe switching clubs this summer could help Dybala get his career back on track. Therefore, Chelsea could be an attractive destination as he will enjoy playing under a world-class manager like Thomas Tuchel in the coming seasons.

What Are The Argentina International’s Best Attributes?

Dybala is still amongst the best dribblers in world football as he got decent pace, excellent ball-control and balance when making direct runs in the attacking third. He can keep possession moving out of tight spaces and can create a few meaningful openings for others around him.

However, the 29-time Argentina international needs to be more unforgiving in front of the opponent’s goal if he wants to re-establish himself as one of the feared strikers in European football. At 27, Dybala is playing at his prime and has still got plenty of football left in his locker. Plus, he is primarily a secondary forward but has shown great versatility to fill in as a centre-forward or as a winger down the right flank if required.

Should The Blues Get Dybala On Board This Summer?

A striker of Dybala’s quality will be a massive coup for the West London giants as he has what it takes to thrive under the stewardship of Tuchel. He will add a lot of quality and depth to Chelsea’s match-day squad but might struggle to adapt to the physical nature and high intensity of English football if the Blues decide to bring him to Stamford Bridge in the summer. All in all, the Blues should think about arranging a big-money move to recruit the Argentine maestro as he could propel them to challenge for the Premier League title in the years to come.
