Arsenal are set to approve a £29.5m move for Palermo striker Paulo Dybala, which would activate his release clause, according to reports in Spain.
21-year-old Dybala is highly regarded in European football and his heralded as one of South America’s brightest young players, with the Argentine already compared to the likes of Lionel Messi.
Juventus and Manchester City are both said to be monitoring the young talent but if reports are correct, then Arsenal are set to make the first move.
Arsenal have been linked to a number of striker’s at the end of the season but their priority lies in securing a defensive midfielder, whilst the Gunners could also move for a goalkeeper.
Paying such a high-price for Dybala seems extremely unlikely at this time but if their interest is genuine, then they will have to spend big as Palermo are not willing to sell for a bargain price.
The Italian side are open to cashing-in this summer though, so the right price could tempt the club and player.
