Arsenal risking top transfer target as Wenger penny pinches

There is interest from some of the biggest clubs in Europe, apparently, so when the Arsenal transfer rumours last week suggested that the Gunners were on the verge of sealing the deal for the summer transfer of Paulo Dybala, the talented young striker making waves with Palermo in Serie A, it looked like we had pulled off a real coup.

But the deal is now on hold, according to a Metro report, after Arsene Wenger backed away from meeting the Serie A club´s valuation of a bit less than £30 million. Instead the Frenchman is trying to screw the price down in order to bring the player dubbed the new Sergio Aguero to north London.

If it works then Wenger will have done good work for the Gunners, but how often in the past have we tried to haggle on price and ended up losing our transfer targets, often to a direct rival? Eden Hazard and Juan Mata are two recent examples and from what I hear coming out of Italy, Dybala has the ability to become a world class striker.

Should Wenger just cough up the cash and sign him?

TOP striker target to say YES to Arsenal transfer!

There have been plenty of Arsenal transfer rumours linking us ever more strongly with the young Argentinean striker Paulo Dybala, with some reports claiming that the president of his current club Palermo has already been in London for talks with Arsenal representatives about a possible transfer to the Premier League this summer.

But there have also been other reports suggesting that the talented 21-year old who is highly sought after around Europe, would actually prefer a move to La Liga leaders Barcelona or staying in Serie A with the Italian champions Juventus.

However, a Metro report now claims to have news from Spain that Dybala is ready to agree a transfer to Arsenal, so that could be very good news for Arsenal fans and one piece of transfer business wrapped up by Arsene Wenger before the current season even finishes.

Now who else should the Gunners go for?

There have been Arsenal transfer rumours linking us with the talented young striker of Serie A side Palermo for some time now. In the build up to the January transfer window it was said that Arsene Wenger and our scouts were having a really good look at Paulo Dybala, the 21-year old Argentinean whose performances in Italy have drawn comparisons to the Premier League’s leading marksman Sergio Aguero.

Even though a striker was not Wenger’s priority this season, the rumours have persisted after the winter window closed, with reports that the Palermo president came to London to meet with people from Arsenal to discuss Dybala and a possible summer transfer.

Earlier this week their president suggested that he was in talks with a few clubs to finalise the terms of the transfer and that it would certainly be happening and now a Metro report reveals that Maurizio Zamparini believes the deal will be completed in the next two weeks.

He said, “A team should close the signing of Dybala in the next 15 days.

“He will not go for less than €40million euros.”

If this is true then what we want to know is, are the Gunners the club set to secure this super young striker?

Arsenal close to beating Europe’s top clubs to SUPER striker signing!!

Arsenal are apparently close to sealing the deal for out first signing of the summer and it is a big one. The 21-year old Palermo striker Paulo Dybala is a seriously hot property and was expected to be the subject of transfer bids from some of the top clubs around Europe at the end of this season, but a Metro report claims that the Gunners could disappoint them by agreeing a deal with the Italian club this week.

The Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini is apparently coming to London for talks with the top brass at Arsenal after we agreed to cough up their valuation of around £30 million for the talented young Argentinean. This would be a real coup for Arsene Wenger if it comes off, with Dybala being called the new Sergio Aguero thanks to his close control, pace, power and scoring prowess.

And he can also play anywhere along a front three as well as in an attacking midfield role, so he sounds like an ideal Wenger type of signing. Let’s hope we get the deal done soon.

Arsenal set for titanic transfer battle with German giants?

There have been a lot of Arsenal transfer rumours recently that have linked Arsene Wenger with a stunning transfer bid for the young Argentinean striker Paulo Dybala. The 21-year old has been in such explosive form in Italy’s Serie A this season that he has been favourably compared to his compatriot Sergio Aguero.

But it was also reported that he was unlikely to complete the transfer from his current club Palermo to Arsenal until the end of the season. With all the attacking options at Wenger’s disposal and the injury situation leaving the Gunners stretched in central midfield and defence, a striker was hardly the priority in January.

But now that Borussia Dortmund have entered the frame, according to a Metro report, and are already in talks over a possible bid to take Dybala to the Bundesliga, Arsenal may have to firm up our interest and move fast to challenge the German giants.

Stunning striker gives Arsenal BIG transfer encouragement

As Arsenal fans have learned over the last painful decade or so, the transfer market can be a pretty complicated affair, with agents, opposing clubs, competition and many other factors to be taken into account. But any transfer can be made easier if the player involved is very keen, although it does not always make it happen.

We saw recently with Luis Suarez that even though he was keen to join Arsenal and made no secret of it, Liverpool were able to scupper the deal. On the other hand, with the likes of Robin van Persie, Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri, the players’ own wishes were a big part of making the transfers happen.

So the news that the extremely talented young striker Paolo Dybala, who has been the subject of a growing number of Arsenal transfer rumouyrs as the January window draws near, has expressed his interest in coming to the Premier League and becoming a Gunner, as reported by The Mirror.

The Argentinean starlet is currently sparkling for Palermo in Serie A but if he continues the way he has begun then there will soon be a number of top European clubs knocking on his door. So maybe Arsene Wenger needs to make his move as soon as possible.

Dybala said, “”To know that someone like that thinks highly of me fills me with pride.

“I can’t deny that going to Arsenal and playing in the Premier League would be great, but at the moment I’m a Palermo player.”

Another striker might not be the priority for Arsenal, but maybe we cannot afford to wait on this one.

WOW! Arsenal set up STUNNING striker transfer

I know that a lot of Arsenal fans do not expect Arsene Wenger to be looking to sign a striker or any attacking players when the January transfer window opens. The Gunners have much more need of cover and strengthening in other areas of the pitch.

There is a chance that a space could come up in the squad if the Frenchman decides to sell our Germany international forward Lukas Podolski. He might as well because he doesn’t seem to want to use him on the pitch after all. But Arsenal will still have many attacking options, which is why we are willing to wait until next summer to complete the transfer of the talented young striker Paulo Dybala, according to a Daily Star report.

The 21-year old Argentinean striker has been with Italian Serie A club Palermo since 2012 but he has really come on this season and started to draw attention from around Europe. He is the struggling club’s top scorer with five from 13 and so they really do not want to lose him this season. But Dybala is very highly rated and has been compared to Sergio Aguero and clearly has a glittering future ahead of him, so Palermo know they won’t be able to hold on to him for long.

And the Gunners are apparently set to steal a march on our rivals by agreeing the transfer of Dybala for next summer and giving Palermo the breathing space they want.
