He has been linked with Premier League moves to Manchester United, Arsenal and Tottenham but a stay in Italy looks to be more likely.
During his time in Turin, Dybala scored 115 goals in 293 appearances for the Old Lady and won 12 major trophies, including five consecutive Serie A titles.
Meanwhile, Napoli are also interested in signing former Everton and Watford winger Gerard Deulofeu, who thrived at Udinese last season.
Luciano Spalletti’s side managed to mount a title challenge last season but fell short in the final few weeks as AC Milan went on to win the big prize.
