Paulo Dybala's representatives held talks with Inter last week ahead of a possible summer move to San Siro, 90min understands.

The Argentine forward is set to leave Juventus as a free agent this summer after failing to come to terms on a new deal with the club.

Dybala had been in talks with Juventus over an extension and even agreed on a new five-year contract worth €8m per year before Christmas. However, after those terms were altered by Juve at the last minute due to the forward's patchy injury record, talks collapsed. Now the player's representatives are in talks with a number of clubs ahead of his move away from Allianz Stadium.

90min have learned that Dybala's representatives have held talks with Juventus' arch-rivals Inter in the last week - talks which make I Nerazzurri favourites to sign the forward.

The 28-year-old would be a replacement for Lautaro Martinez in the forward line, as it is understood that the latter is looking increasingly likely to leave the club and Inter have begun to plan for life without him. The hugely talented forward is of interest to Atletico Madrid, Arsenal and Tottenham - all of whom held talks with the player's agents last year and have remained in contact since. The player prefers a move to England, but is open to joining La Liga.

Dybala's representatives have also been in talks with a number of Premier League clubs. As reported back in February, Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur are all in open dialogue with the player's agents and have confirmed an initial interest in the Juve number ten.

There is also significant interest in keeping Dybala in Italy. Alongside Inter, AS Roma and AC Milan have joined the race to sign Dybala.

As well as Dybala, Romelu Lukaku is also of interest to I Nerazzurri.

Chelsea are prepared to let their club record signing leave the club this summer, and Inter have made it clear to the Blues that they are open to re-signing the Belgian striker. Any move however is set to be delayed by the change of ownership at Chelsea.
