The new phenomenom in Serie A, Paolo Dybala, has been linked with a move to Arsenal, and today has agreed that he is very pleased with being noticed by “big clubs” and went on to say that he would prefer to move to Premiership club over Serie A or La Liga.
“It’s an incredible feeling to be linked with clubs like Borussia Dortmund, Inter, Barcelona and Arsenal,” Dybala was quoted as saying. “All players dream of joining a big club and playing with the best.
“Things are going well, but I cannot relax,”
“I have to keep going and always be focused. All the rumours about my future are the result of my hard work and I have to keep doing things the same way.
“You always try to give your all and reach the top. My goal is to work hard and reach the top.”
“I obviously like Italian football, but I also like La Liga. And I follow the Premier League as well. All the teams charge forward and try to attack. That doesn’t happen in Serie A,” he said.
“This is why I really like English football. A lot of teams are fighting for the title. That’s the biggest difference with La Liga, where you always have the same teams challenging for the title.
“It would be wrong to say I want to go to Barcelona or Real Madrid now. Palermo have given me so much and don’t deserve that. I still have a contract for two more years. I want to continue to grow here for now and do well for Palermo.”
That is very diplomatic for Dybala to say that, but his president has already stated that he would let the Argentinian striker leave for 40m euros. But would Wenger be willing to pay that much for a 21 year-old with only half a season of excellent form behind him?
