Paulo Dybala was said to be interested in Premier League clubs striving to strengthen their squads.
The Argentina international, who has scored 144 career goals, was certainly the most appealing offer on the market this summer, as he became a free agent after leaving Juventus.
Dybala scored 15 goals in all competitions last season, but Mikel Arteta, Antonio Conte, and Eddie Howe will have to look elsewhere.
Roma announced the signing of the 28-year-old on a three-year deal earlier today.
Despite spending the majority of his career playing Champions League football, Jose Mourinho has managed to persuade Dybala to withdraw from the Europa League. The South American has made 53 appearances in Europe's greatest club competition.
Make no mistake about it, the signing of Dybala is a significant move for Roma, and it demonstrates the club's ambitions under Mourinho's leadership.
Arsenal and Newcastle both sent contract offers to the world class attacker, according to reports.
With doubts over Cristiano Ronaldo's future, Erik ten Hag was interested in bringing Dybala to Manchester United.
However, the Premier League's quartet must now move on to other goals.
Arteta, Conte, and Howe haven't put all of their eggs in one basket.
Arsenal is interested in signing Lyon attacker Lucas Paqueta, who works in a similar position to Dybala behind the striker.
Newcastle are equally interested in the Brazilian, who watched Bruno Guimaraes depart Lyon for Tyneside in January. Paqueta is said to be considering doing the same.
Anthony Gordon, an Everton legend, is attracting considerable interest from Tottenham, although it remains to be seen if he will be taken away from Goodison Park.
Keep an eye on the transfer window as the Premier League trio would certainly like to sign another player if possible.
