Much has been said of the talents and prospects of new Argentine sensation, Paulo Dybala, which suggests a move away from Palermo is imminent, a top club in Europe set to be his most likely destination.
That club may not turn out to be Arsenal, though, with German Newspaper, Bild, suggesting that Borussia Dortmund will look to hold talks with his representatives over a potential move in the coming window.
Dybala, 21, has gained the majority of attention over the past few weeks as far the latest attacking prospect is concerned, and has got many clubs, in England and Europe interested. With a starting price of €40m set by his parent club, the highly rated forward looks set to be the next big thing in Europe, even been rated to be the New Aguero.
A hugely impressive season at Palermo has not done him any harm either, with 7 goals in 14 appearances already, having scored in five successive games in which the Rosanero have remained unbeaten.
Dortmund boss, Jurgen Klopp is in desperate search for additions to his team as he has continued to oversee a terrible first half of the Bundesliga season where they languish amongst the bottom three. It cannot be taken lightly what the loss of Robert Lewandowski to Bayern has done to them, as well as the recurring injuries to star man, Marco Reus. A front three of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Henrikh Mkhitarayan and Ciro Immobile are quite a shadow of what Die Borussien used to be, and the highly rated Dybala is being targeted as the one to fill the void.
Despite the talks of Klopp as a potential successor to Wenger, he dosen’t seem in the mood for any favours, and will look to maneuver to the top of the list of suitors queuing for the youngster’s signature.
It would be a surprise, though, to see Dybala move to Germany, as his voiced opinion on the Premier League and Arsenal has reverberated all through London, giving us genuine hope of clinching the deal.
“I can’t deny that going to Arsenal and playing in the Premier League would be great, but at the moment I’m a Palermo player”. Dybala had once said.
Considering his talents, it is only expected that teams will cluster around him, bringing out all the tricks to prick him their way. At 21, he has the world at his feet, and with the talent to match. With Dortmund and Arsenal both in the Last 16 of the Champions League, he is indeed spoilt for choice, though the Gunners look the more likely – on paper – to progress after drawing Monaco. Klopp, on the other hand, will have to see off the challenge of three-time Scudetto Champions, Juventus, a team that will be all too familiar to Dybala.
