Video: £30m Arsenal, Liverpool target Paulo Dybala nets Palermo brace

Argentinian Flag

The Argentine attacker is quickly becoming one of the hottest properties in Italian football and scored twice against Cagliari yesterday.

Paulo Dybala has been described by Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini as ‘the best striker in Serie A’, with the Sicilian club putting an astronomical price tag on the Argentine’s head after a devastating start to 2014-15.

Although the likes of Carlos Tevez and Gonzalo Higuain might dispute Zamparini’s claims about their countryman, Dybala continued his hot streak in front of goal yesterday by netting twice for Palermo in their 5-0 rout of sorry Cagliari.

The goals, which can be seen in the video below, were his side’s third and fourth in the routine win.

Dybala’s first was a well-taken penalty kick, while the South American prodigy smashed home his second from close range.

The brace takes Dybala’s tally for the campaign to nine from 17 games, with the 21-year-old really looking at home in the Palermo attack.

Given the fact that the likes of Edinson Cavani and Javier Pastore made their names at the Sicilian club, Dybala looks destined for greater things and will have plenty of suitors currently.

Both Liverpool and Arsenal have been linked with a move for the diminutive forward, who has been compared to Sergio Aguero in some quarters.

It is being reported that a fee in the region of £30 million will be needed to convince Palermo to sell, but on current viewing it could be money well spent.
