Arsenal target Paulo Dybala ‘clearly leaving’ Palermo - Zamparini

Argentinian Flag

The Argentine hotshot, who is repeatedly being linked with the Gunners, seems destined for a summer move.

Arsenal have got a green light to chase Paulo Dybala, with Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini admitting that the sensation is ‘clearly leaving’ the Italian club this summer.

The Gunners have been consistently linked with a move for the Argentine attacker over recent months, with Arsene Wenger starting the search for potential summer additions.

The Sicilian club’s outspoken president has come to terms with the fact that the South American sensation will be leaving the Stadio Renzo Barbera and has already started looking for a replacement for Dybala.

“It is clear that Dybala will leave,” Zamparini told LiveSicilia.

“In fact, we are looking for another target man. At the moment we only have Andrea Belotti. As well as him we will have another target man.”

Dybala has lit up Serie A this season and has been the key reason why Palermo have overachieved in their first season back in the Italian top flight; the Rosanero are currently in 11th place and have all-but ensured avoiding relegation.

The 21-year-old has netted 12 league goals and created seven assists to date this season and is a fans’ favourite due to his immense dribbling ability, eye for goal and blistering pace.

Arsenal are expected to have fierce competition for the South American’s signing this summer, with the youngster adjudged as one of the most scintillating attackers in the world game.
