Tottenham boss Pochettino refuses to deny Dybala push

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino refused to deny they came close to signing Juventus striker Paulo Dybala.

Spurs were close to signing Paulo Dybala on Deadline Day after agreeing a £64.4m fee with Juventus for the Argentine forward, but the Serie A champions pulled out of negotiations because they failed to line up a replacement.

"It is true that we were linked with a lot of players, such as a name like you are telling me now (Paulo Dybala)," Pochettino said. "These are rumours and you never know if they are true.

"I cannot talk about rumours. Maybe yes, maybe no. We signed very good talented young players like Ryan Sessegnon, Giovani Lo Celso and Tanguy Ndombele. They are still young and can improve."
