Paulo Dybala has reportedly said "yes" to a Tottenham transfer, according to stunning claims in Italy.
Spurs are the frontrunners in the race to sign Dybala, whose held talks with Juventus manager Maurizio Sarri about his future.
According to Italian outlet Tuttosport, the Argentine forward has said yes to a potential switch to North London if the Premier League club can meet Juventus' £80 million valuation.
Mauricio Pochettino is confident in striking a deal for Dybala despite reported interest from Manchester United.
The Argentine boss is a huge fan of the 25-year-old.
"It's always nice to play against the best in the world," he said. "I put Dybala in that category.
"He is a special talent and seeing him on the pitch is wonderful, even if he might cause your team a few problems."
Spurs have already splashed out big cash this summer. They signed Tanguy Ndombele from Lyon for a club record £55 million, though a deal for Dybala would eclipse that transfer fee.

Even though Dybala has been strongly linked with a move away from Turin, Sarri appears to be planning next season with him.
"I think Dybala can play as a false nine quite comfortably," the ex-Chelsea gaffer said following his side's 3-2 defeat to Spurs.
"We can also set up the attack slightly differently, with the 4-3-1-2 and Dybala playing on the right of a front two.
"We'll try to give continuity to the good things we did in the second half [against Tottenham] in Singapore."
