Should Chelsea go for Paulo Dybala in the summer? 

Chelsea Fofana

Juventus ace Paulo Dybala is reportedly set to leave the club for free at the end of this season and Chelsea could be a perfect destination for the Argentine forward. 

The 28-year-old joined the Serie A giants back in 2015 for a fee of around £28.7 million. The playmaker started his career brilliantly at the Allianz Stadium. However, things haven’t gone according to plans for him over the past few campaigns. 

The striker has struggled with his injury problems in recent years which have restricted him from playing regularly. His display on the pitch hasn’t convinced the Bianconeri hierarchy to offer him a long-term contract. 

Reports are claiming that the Argentine had verbal agreements with the Old Lady of Turin about a new contract. However, Juventus have decided not to match the player’s demands in the end. So, the forward is going to leave Massimiliano Allegri’s side at the end of this season. 

Will Dybala be a perfect fit for Chelsea? 

Thomas Tuchel plays with a 3-4-2-1 formation with playmakers just behind the strikers. And therefore, Paulo Dybala will be a great acquisition for Chelsea in the summer. The 28-year-old is versatile and he can play anywhere across the forward line. So, the Juventus man could be an asset for the German boss. 

With Romelu Lukaku struggling to showcase his best and Timo Werner having failed to live up to the expectations at Stamford Bridge, strengthening the attacking department would be a shrewd decision by the Blues’ hierarchy. 

However, the west London club already has enough firepower in their attacking department, and in order to sign some new faces in the attack. They will have to cash in on their stars in the summer. Meanwhile, Chelsea needs to strengthen their defensive issues. 

Andreas Christensen is expected to leave the club for free and join Barcelona. Antonio Rudiger is another man whose current contract will expire at the end of this season and he could leave the club for free as well. Cesar Azpilicueta has also entered the final few months of his current contract and might leave after this campaign.
