Arsenal target Paulo Dybala “is now a Juventus player”, confirms Palermo coach

Arsenal have been heavily linked to Palermo striker Paulo Dybala this season but, according to the Serie A outfit’s coach Beppe Iachini, the youngster has agreed a deal with Italian champions Juventus.

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.

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.
