Palermo boss confirms Arsenal target Paulo Dybala is a Juventus player

The Argentine, who has also been linked with Liverpool and Chelsea, will play for the Bianconeri next season.

Just this morning it was reported by The Mirror that Arsenal still had a chance to snap up Argentine striker Paulo Dybala this summer, as Juventus boss Massimilano Allegri confirmed no deal was yet struck to sign the player from Palermo.

Arsenal are just one of many teams to have been linked to Dybala in recent times.

The Daily Mail reported that Chelsea were keen earlier in the month, whilst Liverpool were linked by the Express in February.

They can all now cross him from the chalkboard.

Dybala will be a Juventus player next season.

Palermo manager Beppe Iachini has been quoted by Football Italia as stating:

“Paulo Dybala is now a Juventus player.”

“Dybala is now a Juventus player and this club is working towards the future.”

The deal is rumoured to be worth around €40 million, with some player exchanges, as is customary in Italian transfer business, also set to go through as part of the deal.

Arsenal would have of course loved to have a talent such as Dybala's at The Emirates. Any team in the Premier League would have been overjoyed to sign the player but it looks bolt-on that he will be playing for the Champions League finalists next season.
