Chelsea are winning the race for Palermo wonderkid Paulo Dybala, according to the Daily Star.
The 21-year-old has become one of the most sought after strikers in world football this season, after netting 11 goals and assisting seven in just 22 appearances for the Serie A side this term.
Arsenal and Man United have both been linked with the youngster in recent windows, with the Daily Star claiming Gunners boss Arsene Wenger was set for talks with Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini about a possible deal.
But Blues chief Jose Mourinho has reportedly made an early move for the £30million-rated Argentine youngster, as he hopes to provide summer signing Diego Costa with a strong strike partner and help boost his side’s plans of domestic and European domination.
Manchester United boss Louis Van Gaal is also believed to be a long term admirer of Dybala, sending scouts to watch him against Inter Milan last week, but has not yet made a move for the striker, paving the way for Chelsea pounce to bring him to Stamford Bridge.
