There has been lots of speculation and any number of Arsenal transfer rumours linking us with this highly rated striker and the constant comments from his club have only added to this. But despite reports claiming that he could have been close to completing his move to north London, Paulo Dybala has instead signed for the Italian champions Juventus.
As reported by the Daily Star, the transfer of the talented young Palermo forward to Juve has been confirmed by the Palermo chief Beppe Iachini, ending any hope that the player dubbed the new Sergio Aguero would be playing for the Gunners next season.
Iachini said, “Dybala is now a Juventus player and this club is working towards the future.”
It seems to me that Juventus are very greedy about snapping up strikers as they have previously beaten Arsenal to the signatures of Fernando Llorente and Alvaro Morata and they still have these two as well as Tevez and others. However it did seem to me that Palermo were asking to much for a relatively untested player and were clearly trying to push his price up with all their talk about his possible transfer.
The question now is who will Arsene Wenger bring in to supply the extra firepower to push Arsenal on next season and make us the champions of England again. Who would you go for?
