Arsenal are badly in need of a strong defensive midfielder and a central defender going into the second half of the season.
However, they are also interested in improving their strike force with a top young forward in the form of Palermo’s Dybala linked.
The 21 year old South American international is very highly rated and other premier league clubs like Liverpool and Man United are also looking to hire his services.
The good news for Arsenal football club is that the players himself prefers a move to the Emirates.
“To know that someone like that thinks highly of me fills me with pride.”
“I can’t deny that going to Arsenal would be great, but at the moment I’m a Palermo player.”
“Different news stories keep coming out, but my thoughts are only occupied by Torino at the weekend.”
“All goal is to stay up, I can’t allow myself to be distracted from that.”
Well the prospect of playing in one of the best leagues in the world and for a team like Arsenal will surely be distracting him to an extent.
Moreover, January window is near and he has to decide sooner rather than later whether he wants to join Gunners or not.
Arsenal already have Welbeck and Giroud as senior strikers in the squad so Dybala is surely not going in the starting XI from the word go. He will have to fight for his place.
