The 21-year-old has reportedly caught the eye of Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United this term, but he has opted to stay put in Serie A.

Arsenal turn attention to Serie A star after missing out on Paulo Dybala
The Argentine forward was always set to leave Palermo at the end of the season, and his future has now been confirmed – much to the disappointment of the Premier League trio.
Iachini told Sky Sports Italia, “Dybala is now a Juventus player and this club is working towards the future,” as quoted by the Daily Express.
According to reports, the deal – allegedly worth €40m – is a combination of cash, performance bonuses and potential player exchanges.
The attacker was left on the bench in Palermo’s 1-0 victory over Cagliari, so as to avoid any potential injury that could damage a transfer going through.
Dybala has been a constant name on the transfer grapevine ahead of the summer window – with his displays for Rosanero making him one of the most highly sought after young strikers in Europe.
He has scored 13 goals and registered 10 assists this season – and will no doubt inject excitement into the forward line of Champions League finalists Juve.
