A reported target of ours Paulo Dybala looks set to leave his current club at the end of the season, and a switch to the Premier League is a definite possibility, according to talkSPORT.
We have been heavily linked with a move for the £30m rated striker in the past, and Arsene Wenger is allegedly considering a move for the promising young star.
The 21-year-old has attracted suitors from all over Europe, but the president of his current club Palermo claims he is likely to prove too expensive for any Serie A sides.
“Paulo Dybala, although very young is one of the best strikers in the world,” Maurizio Zamparini said.
“His future? The problem is not the boy but his agents. I am sorry for this. I’ve been to London and I have received calls from all over Europe.

“I would be happy Napoli bought him, but I don’t think he is within their reach. Dybala is out of reach of all Italian companies.”
This suggests that the Argentine forward is most likely set to move to the Premier League or La Liga, and with the financial firepower that the English top flight now boasts we could soon see him playing over here.
We will have to compete with the likes of Manchester City for his signature, but with UEFA breathing down their necks they need to make sure they stick to the rules of Financial Fair Play. That combined with the fact that Zamparini mentions that he was in London, appears to suggest that we are in the driving seat.
Another forward may not be a top priority for us at the moment, but he certainly looks to be a star of the future.
What do you think Gooners? Would you like to see Paulo Dybala in an Arsenal shirt next season?
