Mauricio Pochettino wants Paulo Dybala in the summer as he looks to add some experience to his otherwise young group of attackers.

According to Fichajes, Paulo Dybala has emerged as a target for Chelsea. Incoming manager Mauricio Pochettino could push the club to sign his compatriot. The 29-year-old World Cup winner has a modest release clause in the summer that could tempt the Blues to make their move.

Paulo Dybala endured a difficult summer last time out, as Juventus backed away from a contract they had previously offered the attacker. The move from the Turin giants left the 29-year-old World Cup winner in the pool of free agents as Roma swept up and secured his signature.

Dybala has proven crucial for Jose Mourinho and has played as a regular in the team. Roma could still succeed in the Europa League, where the Argentine has been crucial. The Argentine will also hope to help Roma with a top-four finish.

His future at Roma remains uncertain beyond the current campaign. He also has a modest release clause in his contract. Clubs outside of Italy can sign Dybala for €12 million, while those in Serie A will have to pay €20 million for the 29-year-old World Cup winner.

That price seems like a snippet to clubs Dybala was reportedly offered to recently. Those teams include Chelsea, who are set to appoint Mauricio Pochettino as their new manager. The Argentine tactician remains keen to bolster his squad with few experienced stars, with the 29-year-old World Cup winner among those considered.

Pochettino also wants Lautaro Martinez from Inter Milan to lead the line. Adding Dybala alongside could make Chelsea a lethal attacking unit. The team have struggled this season without a potent goalscorer. Raheem Sterling and Kai Havertz are their top marksman, with 9 goals each in all competitions.

Adding Dybala would make sense, and Pochettino could request the club bring the 29-year-old World Cup winner. The Roma star and Martinez are not the only Argentines on the incoming manager’s mind, with Aston Villa custodian Emi Martinez also a key target.

As for Dybala, he might consider making a move to the Premier League after turning down offers in the past. Chelsea will not play in the Champions League next season, but that may not stand in their way of signing the 29-year-old World Cup winner in the summer.
