According to reports in France, Paulo Dybala's agent met PSG for lunch in Paris this week.

If reports in magazine France Football are to be believed, then the agent of one of Arsenal’s biggest summer targets has met with French giants Paris Saint-Germain to discuss a possible move at the end of the season.

Paulo Dybala has scored 13 goals in 28 games in Serie A and has become one of Europe’s hottest strikers. It was only last weekend that Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini claimed that he “wouldn’t mind” if his player moved to Arsenal or PSG because they are emerging teams of the future.

Zamparini has told France Football that appointments have been made between PSG and the player’s agent. The former agent of both Edinson Cavani and Ezequiel Lavezzi, Pierpaolo Triulzi, apparently had lunch with PSG on Monday after being asked to Paris to talk about the player.

The eccentric president also went on to declare that Juventus had already made a bid of around €35 million for the forward, but he is willing to wait so he can get “the best deal possible…I want 40 or more.”

Zamparini also revealed, reported ESPN, that he was negotiating with Arsenal, but didn’t say if they had made a bid or not.

PSG may be in the market for a new striker if they sell Cavani this summer, but with only €60 million to spend, they may need to sell the Uruguayan to sign the 21-year-old Palermo star.

The new Premier League TV deal puts Arsenal in a strong position to match Zamparini’s demands, but it will remain to be seen if Arsene Wenger will be willing to go as high for a striker with little experience.
