Chelsea are reportedly interested in Paulo Dybala and are monitoring his developing situation at Juventus closely with the potential of a future move.

According to Tribal Football, Paulo Dybala is of interest to Chelsea. The Argentine international looks unhappy at Serie A giants Juventus and has less than two years on his current deal. The Blues are keeping close tabs on Dybala in the hopes of pouncing on the opportunity, should he be made available or ask for a transfer.

As per Italian publication TuttoMercatoWeb, Juventus have opened talks regarding a contract extension that would see him commit to a new deal up until 2025. However, there have been rumours of Dybala being unhappy at not having made a single appearance so far in the 2020/21 Serie A season, which even led to a reported tunnel clash with Juventus chief Fabio Paratici over his non-existent game time at the club.

Paulo Dybala has proven himself at Juventus on numerous occasions. Despite being continuously linked with a summer exit in 2019, the Argentine ended up staying, put his head down and worked relentlessly for a spot in the team.

Dybala ended the 2019/20 league campaign with 11 goals and 6 assists to his name along with an average Whoscored rating of 7.44. But, with less than two years left on his current contract, Dybala might be interested in the Chelsea project.

Frank Lampard has had a considerably quantifiable first season as manager of Chelsea and has subsequently seen the Chelsea board back him with a number of quality signings. One of the key areas required to be strengthened was the forward role, wherein the club brought in Timo Werner from the Bundesliga.

Tammy Abraham and Olivier Giroud are still options for Lampard. However, the Blues seem to be still struggling to get the best of their attacking talents while Giroud is already 34 and needs to be replaced. Bringing in Paulo Dybala would be like killing two birds with one stone.

Dybala can play on the wings and as a number 10 along with the centre-forward role, which gives Lampard a plethora of options and ways to field his team. The Argentine international had come close to a Premier League switch last summer while being linked to Manchester United and Tottenham and could take up the opportunity to join Chelsea, if such a situation does come to be.
