North London duo chase Argentine wonderkid.
Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur could be set for a battle to sign highly-rated Argentine youngster Paulo Dybala from Palermo this January, according to Fichajes.net.
The 20-year-old striker is in fine form in Serie A this season, and has previously been compared to Manchester City star and fellow countryman Sergio Aguero in a recent link to Premier League side Southampton.
There’s no doubt Dybala looks an exciting prospect who will surely be on his way to a bigger club before long, and it now looks as though Arsenal and Tottenham hope to join the running for his signature in the next transfer window.
Both sides look in need of improvements upfront, with Arsenal relying solely on Danny Welbeck after missing Olivier Giroud through injury, while Spurs’ current strike force of Emmanuel Adebayor and Roberto Soldado have not managed to find their form in front of goal this season.
Dybala has three goals and two assists in Serie A so far this season, and looks like having the potential to follow in the footsteps of City star Aguero in becoming a big hit in the Premier League if he does make the move to English football.
