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.
