Newcastle are apparently ‘setting up a move’ for AS Roma star Paulo Dybala, whose cheap release clause is now live.

Newcastle United is said to be ‘lining up a deal’ for AS Roma and Argentina striker Paulo Dybala.

Dybala has become an extremely appealing alternative for Premier League clubs to recruit in the January transfer window after his contract’s bargain £11 million release clause became live. The provision cannot be invoked by Serie A clubs, although it does expire on January 15.

The 30-year-old’s future is uncertain as overseas clubs look to make a deal for the versatile forward, who has 11 goal involvements in 13 Serie A games this season. Dybala’s current contract expires in 18 months, and Roma has yet to offer him a new one.

Newcastle are the most interested in triggering his low-cost release clause, according to Italian publication Corriere Della Sera. However, the Magpies are thought to be constrained by FFP this month and will have to sell before they can purchase.

Dybala’s current £183,000-a-week wages in the Italian city could also be a concern for Newcastle, as a lucrative agreement would not only add to the club’s losses, which are currently estimated to be £73.4 million in 2022-23, but would also destabilize the club’s wage structure.
