Just incase you are wondering whether or not Paulo Dybala would have the capacity to take Tottenham Hotspur to the next level.
Sit back, watch this and now try to envisage this man playing alongside Spurs striker Harry Kane. 👀

On Wednesday, Football Index traders went into a frenzy of discussion, as news was released that there will be a 2019/2020 season announcement and subsequent market suspension on Tuesday 30th July.
Many theories are doing the rounds with regards to what the announcement could be, but the fact that there will be a 30 minute market suspension, in order to allow traders to digest the information, suggests that this will be another big day for the Football Index. Following the recent surveys regarding possible refinements to the Performance Buzz scoring matrix, it seems that some traders are speculating that this announcement could well have a positive impact on several key players.
One of the biggest risers yesterday was Leverkusen midfielder Kerem Demirbay (£1.34). Having moved from Hoffenheim for a substantial fee in excess of £25million, the German’s stats last season certainly merit this price tag. In just 24 starts last season (and 2 substitute appearances), Demirbay managed an impressive outlay of 4 goals and 9 assists. Whilst his goals and assists are impressive, a closer look at the German’s offensive stats make for tantalising reading. Demirbay racked up a very impressive average of 3.1 key passes per game, whilst also managing a very respectable average of 2.2 dribbles per game. Whilst I am unaware as to what the announcement on Tuesday will be, it does seem that traders are backing Demirbay to be one such player who could well benefit from any possible alterations which could occur.
With three weeks remaining until the season starts, the transfer rumour mill continues to gather momentum and Paulo Dybala (£2.82) is the latest player to be linked with a move to the Premier League. Dybala has been on Man United’s radar in the past, but it seems that Tottenham are now in the frame for the Argentine. The North-London club appear to be in the market for an attacker and although Dybala didn’t have the most productive of campaigns last year, he would still be a statement signing for Spurs. With Cristiano Ronaldo’s (£2.89) arrival in Turin, it was unsurprising to see that Dybala’s productivity was reduced somewhat, with much of Juventus’ play going through the Portuguese star instead. As such, while Ronaldo remains in Turin, the rumours of a move for Dybala will surely continue to do the rounds.
Another Argentine who has been making moves on the market recently is Atalanta’s mercurial star Alejandro Gomez (£1.20). The attacking midfielder is up 9p in the past 24 hours and with Atalanta playing Champions League football this year, Gomez now has the platform he deserves to display his awesome talent. Gomez helped himself to 5 performance buzz wins last season and averaged a score of 124 points across 36 matches. Having smashed three scores over 200 points, as well as another five scores over 175, it seems that traders are recognising the potential dividend returns that Gomez offers. Atalanta will no doubt be hoping to build on their impressive campaign last season and with Gomez leading the line, they have good reason to feel confident.
Tuesday’s announcement will soon come around, but until that time, traders appear to already be prepping their portfolios in advance. However, with plenty more preseason matches to be played until this time, there will continue to be opportunities to profit on a daily basis across Football Index.
