Palermo’s Paulo Dybala comments on Arsenal speculation

Arsenal Emirates

Paulo Dybala, who is claimed to be the ‘Next Lionel Messi’, is reportedly on the radar of both Liverpool and Arsenal.

Palermo striker Paulo Dybala has admitted that moving to Arsenal would be “amazing”.

The 21-year-old Argentine has been linked with a switch to the Gunners in recent weeks, with fellow Premier League outfit Liverpool also believed to be interested.

Dybala has been on the books of Italian club Palermo since 2012 and his stock has risen this season, thanks to some impressive performances in Serie A.

The youngster is keeping his feet on the ground, but admits that he is interested in playing for Arsenal and in the Premier League in the future.

"I'm calm,” Sport Witness quotes Dybala as saying. “For now the news is just coming out in the media, there is nothing concrete. My head is on the clash next weekend against Torino, which is very important to us.

“Whenever people speak well of me, I'm filled with pride. I will not deny that going to Arsenal and playing in the Premier League would be amazing. However, I am aware that my reality right now is Palermo.”

Dybala’s quotes emerge on the same day that Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger spoke of looking at “young players” to sign (click here to read more). Is the Argentine on the Gunners’ radar?

Maybe, maybe not.

What is clear now is that following Dybala’s comments, speculation will increase on his future and more column inches will be devoted to him.
