Paulo Dybala may have only signed for Roma yesterday, but there's still speculation about his future.

Dybala has a 20 million (17 million) release clause in his Roma contract, and that is certain to have attracted the attention of Tottenham Hotspur.

As many Spurs fans will know, the London club have long been supporters of Dybala, and some say Fabio Paratici is in love with the Argentine.

During his time at Juventus, Paratici knew exactly what the player was talking about, and this 17 million price tag might tempt Spurs to make a move.

Dybala may seem like a bargain for 17 million, but lets not forget, he has been a free agent for the past three weeks, so spending this amount of money on him would not necessarily be of great value.

A move isnt likely to happen in the coming days or weeks. After all, the top player has just signed for Roma, but it's possible that one might happen in January or next summer.

Dybala's performance in Rome will play a major role in a lot of these decisions. The Serie A leaders have the possibility to subvert this release clause by increasing Dybala's salary or offering him a longer contract, but that is only likely if the Argentine hits the ground running.

Despite Dybala's excellent start in Rome, it may not be long before Europe's elite clubs come calling again, and if that happens, Jose Mourinho's side may be unable to keep hold of him.

Keep an eye on this situation in the next months, especially if any links to Tottenham emerge.
