The Gunners have been beaten by the Old Lady to Dybala, who is likely to move to Turin for a £30 million fee. After a season in which he has scored 13 goals and created another ten it is yet to be seen if the 21-year-old can perform on the big stage. So Arsene Wenger may have got lucky by not paying so much for an unproven talent.

With the youngster signing for the Bianconeri it could mean that Llorente is on the market. The 30-year-old has not been at his best this season, only managing to net eight times in 41 games. However, the Spaniard is a very similar player to Olivier Giroud, lacking in pace but capable of holding the ball up and bringing others in to the game. So the North London club could be bringing in a good reserve for the Frenchman.

They may have to fight off Valencia and Tottenham for the striker’s signing though.
