Palermo have confirmed that club president Maurizio Zamparini has spoken to teams in England, with Arsenal leading the race for prized asset Paulo Dybala, according to reports from the Metro.
Dybala has been heavily linked with a move away from the Stadio Renzo Barbera for much of the season, with the Argentine wonderkid performing brilliantly in the current campaign, scoring 12 goals while providing another seven assists.
His displays have therefore attracted interest from several of Europe’s top clubs, with the likes of Manchester United and league-leaders Chelsea keen on his services.
But it seems that the Gunners are in pole position to sign the attacker, with a £30million bid reportedly made to the Serie A side.
Now the Rosanero’s president Maurizio Zamparini has revealed that he has spoken to English clubs when he was in the country, and that he is close to agreeing on a deal that will see Dybala depart this summer.
“I’m speaking directly to the presidents of the teams interested in England,” he said.
“There is a lot of interest, the player is very good and we’ll try to find an agreement.”
