The talented young Palermo striker Paulo Dybala has already been the subject of quite a few Arsenal transfer rumours, and that trend looks likely to continue until somebody signs the 21-year old in the summer transfer window. That does seem likely to happen as he is apparently being tracked by a number of big clubs like Chelsea, Borussia Dortmund, Man United and Barcelona.
It was being reported a week or so ago that his current club’s chairman was coming to London to meet with representatives of the Gunners about a proposed move to Arsenal at the end of the season. Now a Metro report claims that Arsenal are willing to meet the valuation of almost £30 million that the Serie A club have slapped on their starlet.
The news from Spain is that we are determined to beat all the rival clubs to the player being compared favourably to his fellow Argentinean Sergio Aguero. There is another big reason for Arsenal not to mess about on this one as well, because Dybala himself has recently declared that he would love to play for Barcelona.
However, they cannot register any new players until next January and so we have this one transfer window left without them being able to beat us to any player, unless they want to pay big money for a player they can’t use of course.
So is Dybala our transfer priority when the season ends?
