The 21-year-old Argentinian striker has been linked with moves to a number of top European football clubs including Manchester United, Borussia Dortmund, Juventus, Napoli and Manchester City, along with Barcelona after a trailblazing season at the Sicilian club.
Dybala has been in impressive form in Serie A, scoring 12 goals in 24 games so far this campaign.
In an interview with an Italian radio station the striker was asked if he would be open to a move to the Spanish superclub, responding with, “Would I be open to a move to Barcelona? I would swim to Barcelona if they came knocking.
“I wouldn’t even have to change into my swimming gear. After all, I would only have to cross the Mediterranean Sea.”
This news comes just a month after the striker said he dreamed of playing for Luis Enrique’s side, along with Manchester City, in an interview with an Italian sports magazine.
He said, “When I play with the Playstation, I always choose Barcelona or Manchester City.
“I dream to play one day with one of those clubs.”
Dybala is highly rated at Palermo, with club president Maurizio Zamparini dubbing him the new Sergio Aguero following his £9 million move from Argentinian club Instituto in April 2012.
