As well as there being various Arsenal transfer rumours claiming that Arsene Wenger and his scouting team have been tracking Paulo Dybala and discussing a possible transfer to Arsenal with his current club, there have also been reports in the football media linking him with a number of clubs like Juventus, Barcelona, Real Madrid and our Premier League rivals Manchester United.
The 21-year old striker is supposedly a real star of the future and is very highly regarded in Italy´s Serie A, where his 12 goals have helped to keep lowly Palermo away from the drop zone this season and have really caught the attention of a number of clubs including Arsenal. His all round game has also drawn comparisons with world class strikers like Sergio Aguero and Montella.
But although it was clear that Palermo were willing to sell their star for the right price, there were rumours that Dybala was holding out for a move to Barcelona or perhaps Juventus. But the La Liga giants are still under that transfer embargo and the Italian champions have strikers coming out of their ears so maybe that is why we are now hearing that the Gunners are close to sealing the deal.
One Metro report claims that the young forward has now agreed to come to the Premier League and another report says that officials from Arsenal and Palermo are due to meet next week to complete the details of the transfer to be done this summer.
Is this yet another nail in the coffin of Theo Walcott´s Arsenal career?
