Roma plan to present former Juventus star Paulo Dybala with a contract offer in the coming days as they look to win the race for the striker.

Giallorossi coach Jose Mourinho has made it clear that the Argentine is on the top of his transfer priorities this summer – as he looks to secure the 28-year-old’s signature ahead of Inter Milan and Napoli.

Dybala, whose seven-year stint at Juventus came to an end at the end of last season, remains undecided over his future, with no advanced deals in the pipeline yet – but Mourinho is hopeful an agreement can be struck.

According to Corriere dello Sport, the Portuguese manager personally spoke with Dybala on the phone a week ago as he looks to persuade Dybala to join Roma over Serie A rivals Inter Milan and Napoli.

It’s understood that Mourinho wanted to have the Argentine signed in time for Roma’s the pre-season training camp this week- but that looks almost impossible now.

The former Spurs boss has pushed director Tiago Pinto to make a decisive move – and within the next 24 hours, Pinto will officially present Roma’s offer to the player’s agents.

The Italian side are looking to conduct their business early in the transfer window having already announced the arrivals of Zeki Celik, Nemanja Matic and Mile Svilar.  

The Argentine scored 115 goals from 293 appearances in all competitions for Juventus 

It seemed that Dybala was set for a move to Inter Milan, with Roma not able to match the salary offered by the Nerazzurri, which was thought to be in the region of €6 million a year plus €1m in add-ons.

However, that move was later scuppered due to the requests from Dybala’s agent and their need to sell either Edin Dzeko or Joaquin Correa after Romelu Lukaku’s arrival.

The delay opened the door for Roma, with Mourinho pushing hard to seal the move for the five-time Serie A winner.
