For months, one of Juventus' stars has been linked with a move away from the Allianz Stadium, and it now seems Jose Mourinho is keen to swoop for the playmaker.
It has been public knowledge for a while now that Paulo Dybala would not be extending his contract with the Bianconeri after talks between the two parties broke down earlier this year.
Since the fallout, a number of Europe's biggest clubs have been reported to be interested in acquiring the skilful playmaker's services.
Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur, and Atletico Madrid have all been linked with a move for Dybala, with Inter Milan said to be leading the race for the Argentine's signature.
There might yet be a twist in the tale, though, with Roma boss Mourinho now reportedly actively pursuing Dybala.
According to La Repubblica, the Giallorossi manager is trying his best to persuade the five-time Scudetto winner to grace the Stadio Olimpico for the foreseeable future.
Dybala's wage demands may prove a stumbling block for any potential transfer, however, with any deal involving the former Palermo man needing approval from Roma's American owner Dan Friedkin.
A move for the playmaker could happen if Roma are able to offload a creative player of their own in the form of Nicolo Zaniolo, who has been linked with Juventus himself.
While Mourinho could perhaps entice Dybala to play for the 2000/01 Serie A winners, Roma would likely need to hold on to their sixth position in the log standings as the race for the European places heats up in the Italian top flight, with one game left to play.
The Argentina international bid an emotional farewell to the Bianconeri faithful in the club's final home game of the season, a 2-2 with Roma's eternal rivals Lazio, on Monday night.
