Arsenal is said to have seen their initial £31.4million bid for Paulo Dybala beaten by Borussia Dortmund as Manchester United are yet to join the chase for the highly rated striker, Daily Star reports.
The German giants are believed to have overtaken the Gunners by tabling a £37.7million offer to sign the 21-year-old, putting them in pole position to land the Palermo man.
United are also believed to be interested in the services of the Argentinian, currently dubbed as the next Sergio Aguero after a very good start to the Serie A.
He has started all of his side’s 16 league games this season and has now scored seven goals and provided six assist, alerting a number of European giants towards a potential January approach.
Although Dortmund are currently fighting to avoid relegation, they are planning to bring in Dybala as replacement to Marco Reus, a player who is set to be sold next month in order to avoid triggering his £20million release clause at the end of the current campaign.
