Rudi Voller: Paulo Dybala is among the best Roma transfers in history

Scoring 6 goals and providing two assists since arriving from Juventus on a free transfer last summer, the former Roma legendary striker has hailed Paulo Dybala as "one of the most important signings in Roma's history".

Paulo Dybala,

who scored 82 league goals in his seven years at Juve, left the team as a free agent in July to sign Jose Mourinho’s side. He is the 10th-best scorer in Juventus history and is considered the best non-European scorer in the history of the club. The Argentine has also made an impressive start to life in

Former Roma striker and coach

Rudi Voller

, who scored 68 goals in 198 games for Roma between 1987 and 1992, hails the Argentine as one of the best signings in the club's history. He told

Corriere dello Sport:


He's one of the most important signings in Roma's history.

"The fans were waiting for a big hit, and he arrived. [He is] magnificent, and he is fulfilling expectations.

"I hope he can continue like this and not have any physical problems. If Paulo is physically well, he can be devastating with that exceptional left foot."


Meanwhile, the former Chelsea striker

Tammy Abraham

had a steady start to the season as he only scored twice in 10 appearances this season. Voller added: "

He must believe in himself; never stop having faith in his abilities because these moments happen to all strikers, even the strongest ones.

"Then comes the match when you score a hat-trick and everything changes, especially in your head.

"The important thing is to always remain focused on the tasks and duties, even if he doesn't score, Abraham must continue to work for the team, give everything on the pitch."



Roma’s incredible start to the season

, Voller said: "The victory against Inter was exciting for the fans and put the team back in a good position in the standings. They have a very good chance of at least making it to the Champions League spots.

"The beauty of Italian football is that right now there is no Bayern Munich that is superior to all the others. Here, there are five-six teams that can fight for the Scudetto.

"Roma must now aim for fourth place, then once they've stabilised and found their balance they'll be able to think about even more important objectives."
