Tottenham Hotspur are thinking about making another move to sign Juventus forward Paulo Dybala in January and are open to Christian Eriksen moving the other way as part of the deal.

Spurs wanted to sign Dybala in the summer but failed to agree a deal with the Italian champions.

However, Mauricio Pochettino remains interested in his fellow Argentine and could go back for him in January, according to Tuttosport in Italy.

The publication further claims that Spurs could be willing to let 27-year-old Eriksen move the other way.

Eriksen stayed publicly that he was looking for a new challenge in the summer after spending six years in north London. However, despite attracting interest from a number of top European clubs and Manchester United, no deal was forthcoming.

Eriksen is in the final year of his contract and could leave for nothing next summer. With little sign of the Dane signing a new deal – despite Spurs’ best efforts to tempt him – they may decide to cash in on him in January.

However, Spurs could face competition for Dybala. Paris St-Germain have been rumoured to be interested and could also return with a bid for the player who has been unsettled in Turin since the arrival of Christiano Ronaldo.
