Italian journalist Ivan Zazzaroni believes that Inter have stepped up their pursuit of Paulo Dybala after becoming aware of the interest of Roma in the Juventus forward.
Writing in today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, Zazzaroni suggested that the Nerazzurri as well as Tottenham feel that the race to sign the 28-year-old is more urgent due to the Giallorossi’s reported interest.
Dybala has no shortage of suitors for the summer transfer window since it has been confirmed that he will be departing the Bianconeri on a free transfer.
The Nerazzurri have appeared to be in pole position for some time, but they must still beat out the interest of a number of clubs in Serie A as well as abroad.
Roma were linked as having a serious interest in the Argentine recently, with the Corriere dello Sport in particular reporting on the links, and Zazzaroni believes that this has prompted movement from Inter and Tottenham.
“After the Corriere reported on the interest of Roma, the likes of [Inter CEO] Marotta and [Tottenham Sporting Director] Paratici have been in contact with La Joya’s entourage, and ready to make an offer,” he writes.
