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, Fichajes claimed that Barcelona want to land AS Roma forward Paulo Dybala this summer. It has been revealed that the Catalan club are eyeing a move to secure the services of the Argentine talent in this off-season.

Dybala’s Decent Run Of Form In Serie A

Dybala enjoyed a productive campaign at the Italian club as he produced a series of impressive performances as the focal point of Jose Mourinho’s attack. The Argentine sensation banged in 18 goals and picked up eight assists in 38 appearances for his current club last season in various competitions.

The 29-year-old has been a consistent performer in the final third based on his average of 2.5 shots, 2.0 key passes and 1.0 dribbles per 90 minutes in Serie A. He has also been careful when linking up play with others around him up top, based on his pass success rate of 82.3% in the Italian first division (stats via whoscored).

Dybala is under contract at the Italian club is set to expire in the summer of 2025. Hence, Barca would have to make a big offer if they want to bring him on board this summer.

What Will Dybala Add To Barcelona Boss Xavi’s Side?

Dybala is proficient at finding space for himself to get a few shot attempts in on-target. He can be a decent finisher in front of the opponent’s goal when he is playing well on the pitch. The Argentina international is a technically gifted footballer who has got the vision to engineer a few promising chances for his teammates on the attacking end of the field. He is primarily a centre-forward but can also fill in as a right-sided winger if asked to do so.

We can expect Dybala to add more firepower to Barcelona head coach Xavi’s frontline. He has what it takes to secure a regular starting spot at the Nou Camp next season.

At 29, Dybala is currently playing in his prime and is well-equipped to make an instant impact at the Catalan club as long as he can make a smooth transition to life in Spain. The Argentine striker might even help Barca challenge for some major honours over the next couple of seasons.
