Arsenal officials are set to meet with Palermo representatives over the transfer of striker Paulo Dybala, reports the Metro.
The Gunners would have to pay up to £28.9 million to secure the signing of the Argentinian forward, but this would appear to be no stumbling block for a move.
Arsenal signed Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil in big money deals in the recent windows, effectively ending the club’s reputation for being miserly in the transfer market.
The 21-year-old has scored 12 times in 27 appearances this season, and is one of the most exciting players in Serie A.
Wenger’s side haven’t struggled in front of goal, with the likes of Olivier Giroud and the aforementioned Sanchez both scoring regularly, however the Arsenal boss may elect to permanent offload loaned out stars Yaya Sanogo, Joel Campbell and Lukas Podolski and this could leave room for a fresh attacking addition.
Arsenal could well bring in reinforcements in the summer after another season where they have largely been out of contention for the Premier League title.
