Arsene Wenger has been linked with move for the 21-year-old in recent weeks with the Serie A side slapping a €40m price-tag on their most prized asset, Manchester United have also been rumoured to have expressed an interest in Dybala (via Daily Mail).

It seems as though Wenger has signified his intent by placing an offer to Palermo as suggested by Maurizio Zamparini, but it is yet to be determined whether or not the asking price has been met.

“Juventus and Arsenal have already made offers for the boy,” Zamperini was quoted as saying in the publication.

“Of the English clubs that have shown interest, though, Arsenal is his first choice because of the way [Arsene] Wenger makes his team play.”

Arsenal seem well stocked in the forward line, with the likes of Lukas Podolski, Joel Campbell and Yaya Sangogo all having to seek loan moves away in January in order to get game time.

If these reports are to be believed, then the future of Theo Walcott immediately comes into sharp focus with the forward out of contract in just over 12 months, perhaps this is the beginning of the end for the England man?
