Arsenal may miss out on highly rated summer target, Paulo Dybala, with reports claiming the young striker looks set to join BundesLiga giants, Dortmund in the summer.
The Express reports that officials from the Westfalenstadion have scouted the 21-year old on some occasions this season and Palermo are willing to discuss with them a £30m summer move, though club supremo, Maurizio Zamparini had always made clear his desire to get the highest fee possible for his priced asset.
That would make it more a surprise that Dortmund are ahead currently in the running given that the host of Premier League clubs rumoured as also being in the chase seem to be able to present higher bids than they.
Arsenal are seen by many as one of the clear favourites from England, with Dybala himself once admitting he was flattered with the possibility of joining the Gunners.
In Arsene Wenger, he will have a manger who loves to explore the hunger and desire of South American forwards, as expressed in his raving reviews of Luis Suarez, Edinson Cavani, Alexis Sanchez and Jackson Martinez. And with 11 goals in 20 appearances for the Rosanero, Dybala looks to be taking keenly to his tag as the new Sergio Aguero.
That’s not to say that Dortmund would be a bad move for him as Jurgen Klopp has developed an interesting tactic of football which, though flawed for large parts of this season partly due to injuries. He may be the one who ends the career of Italian Striker, Ciro Immobile. The former Torino man has been unable to properly fill the shoes of Robert Lewandowski and could make way for the promising Argentine.
