Arsenal abandon their pursuit of Serie A attacker because of his high demands

Arsenal was in the running to sign Paulo Dybala after it became clear that he was leaving Juventus as a free agent.

The attacker has been at the Italian club since 2015 and he has become one of the world’s best players.

Juve opted not to extend his stay with them and he is now expected to join another club for next season.

Marca Argentina reports that Arsenal initially had a serious interest in his signature and reached out to his entourage.

However, they made a huge demand on the Gunners in terms of expected wages and Mikel Arteta’s side immediately withdrew their interest in his signature.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Dybala is one of the finest players in the world, but the Argentinian hasn’t been fit enough to make as much impact as fans have expected.

If he struggles with injuries in the Italian league, it might be worse for him in the Premier League because it is a more intense competition.

The former Palermo man could easily make an impact at the Emirates, but his needs must be reasonable for us financially.

We are doing well with the younger players we are signing recently and we will still thrive in the next campaign without a global superstar like Dybala in our squad.

  1. please Arsenal go and sign Nkunku after Gabriel Jesus forget about that Raphinha we need left back Lisandro Martinez please

    1. Buy out clause active next summer of 2023, €60m apparently. No UCL football this year made deals for Nunez, Nkunku or bigger names really difficult as top players want to be in the champions league

  2. May be we should pray that Henry come to Arsenal because MA is not interested in Nkoukou who is right now one of the best goal scorering machine.

  3. Glad they’re not dishing out the dosh for another retirement project.

    Anyone with injury concerns is a no for Arsenal, with our track record on injuries.

    Maybe it’s time players were on a pay-for-play basis, there seem to be a few who present the old sick note too easily.

  4. If we could get rid of the of the players not needed like;
    Bellerin £9m
    Lucas £15m
    Leno £8m
    Pepe £20m
    Nelson £7m

    Loan Taveres & Lokonga out along with Balogun, fees for the loans. Use the money above to buy Teilimans, he is sitting there waiting to be bought. Vieira is an attacker he said so himself, we still need a cdm/cm & the 2 lads above mentioned need game time every week that we can’t offer them.

    Jesus for that money and wage is throwing away money, each summer we do the same. Last year Ben White, Year before Pepe.

    Edu links us with Brazilian after Brazilian…. Martinelli he got very lucky tbh and worked out well, maybe Marquinhos too but buying Jesus is a step too far for that money just like Willians wage when he came, David Luiz etc…

  5. It would be interesting to actually know what his demands were.
    We are not a club that has shirked away from big salaries, as Ozil and Aubemeyang show.
    Neither is the length of contract seemingly an issue, so what was it that made us drop out?

    Not that I’m bothered about the player by the way.
