There have been hundreds of Arsenal transfer rumours linking us with the new Palermo hitman Paulo Dybala recently and has now been confirmed by the Palermo president that the Gunners are one of the interested clubs.
Dybala has scored 12 goals for the Serie A minnows this season, and Maurizio Zamparini has admitted that the Argentinian striker will probably be moving on in the upcoming transfer window. Zamparini was asked if Dybala and his team-mate Franco Vazquez would be going to AC Milan this summer. He replied (quoted on ESPN): “Dybala and Vazquez will probably be sold this summer,”
“Will they go to Milan? No, they certainly won’t be joining the Rossoneri. They are being tracked by Juventus, Arsenal, Barcelona, Manchester City, Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain.”
The 21 year-old is now approaching the end of his third season in Italy since coming over from Institut in Argentina, and had only scored eight goals in his previous two seasons at the club, but he has now matured and has helped keep his club away from the relegation zone this year. It has been rumoured that his price could be as high as 40m Euros but that would depend on the bidders involved in the summer.
If he continues to progress at his present rate that price would be considered a bargain, especially if he performs well in the Premiership, and Wenger may consider this as a sound investment for the future, but with Olivier Giroud in scintillating form and Danny Welbeck progressing nicely it is hard to see how he could get much game time at the Emirates at the moment…..
