Arsenal and Borussia Dortmund set to lock horns for the signature of Serie A side Palermo’s young sensation Paulo Dybala.
Both Arsenal and Borussia Dortmund are interested in signing a striker in the winter transfer window and young Argentine striker Paulo Dybala has caught the attention of both the clubs as Palermo head coach Giuseppe Iachini has already admitted that the club could decide to sale the player if a suitable offer comes up.
Paulo Dybala, 21, has been on sparkling form for Palermo this season, scoring seven Serie A goals and finding the net for five consecutive games. These impressive displays of Paulo Dybala for the Sicilian club have caught the attention of host of Europe’s top clubs, including Arsenal, Liverpool and Borussia Dortmund.
Meanwhile, reports coming from Argentina and Italy have also claimed today that Arsenal and Borussia Dortmund are pushing hard for young talent Paulo Dybala. According to Latin American newspaper Clarin, Arsenal and Borussia Dortmund have been won over by Dybala’s performances.
Asrenal are interested in signing a genuine goal scorer as they are too much dependant on Alexis Sanchez to score this season. Olivier Giroud was out with a long injury and although he is back now, the Frenchman will need some more time to settle down. Amid this ongoing struggle to find a regular scorer, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger thinks that Paulo Dybala could add a great value to his squad.
Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund is also interested in signing the young Palermo striker. Borussia Dortmund are badly struggling for form at the moment and coach Jurgen Klopp is eager to make some much needed re-enforcements in order to keep alive the hopes of qualifying for the UEFA Champions League next season.
Meanwhile, amid this ongoing tussle for the signature of the player, the factor which is going in favor of both Arsenal and Borussia Dortmund is the willingness of Palermo to listen to the suitable offer.
Giuseppe Iachini, head coach of Palermo, has admitted today that any offer for Paulo Dybala “would be evaluated”.
“I am convinced that the club wants to keep him as long as possible,” he told Tutto Mercato.
“If we were to get an offer it is clear that the club would evaluate it. But, we also need to think of Paulo Dybala furthering his career, although I am sure that Zamparini would keep him at Palermo for life.”
