This one of many Arsenal transfer rumours will simply not go away and every time we hear about a new piece of the puzzle it suggests that Arsene Wenger really is very interested in the young Argentina born striker Paulo Dybala, dubbed by some as the new Sergio Aguero, due to his attributes and scoring prowess.
The Gunners were linked with the 21-year old back in the summer and then again in the run up to, during and even after the January transfer window. And then a week or so ago it was being reported that Arsenal were in talks with his current club Palermo from Serie A as we tried to sort out a deal to bring the talented forward to the Emirates in the summer.
The latest, as reported by Metro, is that the Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini has officially confirmed that transfer talks are ongoing, although it seems that we are not the only interested party.
The Italian supremo said, “I’m speaking directly to the presidents of the teams interested in England.
“There is a lot of interest, the player is very good and we’ll try to find an agreement.”
And it is not just our Premier League rivals Chelsea and Man United that are keen on Dybala apparently, as he is said to be interesting some other top clubs around Europe, including the reigning Champions League holders Real Madrid.
So even if the rumours are true, how likely is it that Arsenal will win the race for this coveted young striker?
