We will have to wait and see whether Arsenal are willing to pay the big money for transfers we need to, in order to challenge the big spending clubs now that the Emirates stadium is paid off – and Arsene Wenger supposedly has the funds available to get the best players.
We might soon find out though, as Man United are apparently stepping up their interest in the young Argentinean striker Paulo Dybala of the Serie A club Palermo. Dybala has a great reputation in Italy where they are comparing him to players like Sergio Aguero, partly because of his compact physique and low centre of gravity that allows him to hold off players and use his technical skills to turn defenders inside out.
He is a good finisher as well, which is why Palermo are looking for nearly £30 million for their star this summer, according to a Daily Mirror report. You just know that Wenger and Arsenal are not going to want to pay that much for a 21-year old who is more promise than finished product, but times have changed and big teams have to pay the big bucks.
There was a certain Cristiano Ronaldo who Wenger wanted to sign as a youngster but it was Man United that coughed up the cash. Can we afford to let the same thing happen again?
