Palermo coach admit bids for Paulo Dybala "would be evaluated"

The Argentine attacker has been in great form in Serie A this term, with suitors in the Premier League such as Arsenal and Liverpool taking note.

Palermo attacker Paulo Dybala has been one of the standout performers of the 2014-15 Serie A campaign and seems to be finally living up to his substantial promise.

Compared to compatriot Sergio Aguero by many, the former Instituto forward has hit seven goals this term and has dazzled the Stadio Renzo Barbera crowd with his shows of skill.

Arsenal and Liverpool have both been linked with a move for the 21-year-old South American, with the Sicilian club potentially facing the prospect of losing their star man.

Despite the number of suitors piling up, Palermo head coach Giuseppe Iachini has stated that the Serie A side want to keep Dybala

“I am convinced that the club want to keep him as long as possible,” he told Tutto Mercato.

“If we were to get an offer it is clear that the club would evaluate it. But, we also need to think of Paulo furthering his career, although I am sure that Zamparini would keep him at Palermo for life.”

Reports in Germany also state that Borussia Dortmund are monitoring the wonderkid, while Palermo’s outspoken president Maurizio Zamparini has hailed the forward as the best player in his position in Serie A previously.
