wants to bring Paulo Dybala to Roma, beating a string of top European clubs to the free agent’s signature.
The 28-year-old left when his contract expired at the end of last season and it is somewhat surprising that he is yet to be snapped up.
, , Tottenham, Inter Milan and Atletico Madrid have all been credited with interest in the forward, but no move has materialised.
The Argentina international’s wage demands were thought to be the problem as he was hoping the fact he is available on a free transfer would allow him to earn as much as £280,000-a-week.
No one has jumped at the opportunity to sign him at that cost and the striker has been forced to lower his demands and now Mourinho wants Roma to pounce.
Italian publication say Mourinho is frustrated with the lack of major signings, having just brought in Nemanja Matic and Mile Svilar on free transfers and Zeki Celik for a small fee from Lille.
Dybala would represent a massive signings for the UEFA Conference League winners and could move them closer to challenging for the Serie A title.
With other suitors fading away, Mourinho could get his man as Inter Milan and Tottenham are now out of the race for Dybala, while Manchester United and Arsenal do not seem too fussed about following up on their interest.
Napoli are interested in keeping the striker in Serie A and could challenge Roma with an offer of their own.
