Arsenal have officially launched a substantial transfer bid for Palermo’s £29million-rated striker Paulo Dybala.
Speaking on Italian station Radio Marte, Palermo president Mauro Zamparini confirmed that the Gunners have made an offer for the Argentine, along with Serie A giants Juventus.
‘Juventus and Arsenal have already made offers,’ he said.
‘The lad’s agent will be in Italy on Friday and I’m asking for more than €40m (£29m)’.
While the size of Arsenal’s offer remains undisclosed, it is the clearest indication yet that Arsene Wenger believes in the hype surrounding the 21-year-old.
And although Dybala is understood to be keen to stay in Italy, the Emirates is his preferred destination should he make the move abroad.
‘Dybala would prefer to stay in Italy, but among the British teams Arsenal are his first choice because of the way Wenger’s team plays.’
Zamparini’s comments are the latest evidence that Dybala will be on the move this summer after Palermo director Dario Baccin revealed that the youngster had rejected the offer of a new contract.
