Gunners will match club’s £31m asking price.
Arsenal could be closing in on the signing of highly-rated Palermo striker Paulo Dybala after agreeing to meet his £31m asking price, according to the Daily Express.
The young Argentine has attracted plenty of interest of late, but Manchester United look set to miss out on his signature after the Gunners upped their interest in the player dubbed ‘the new Sergio Aguero’.
Dybala has six goals and two assists so far this season and has been one of Serie A’s top attacking players, despite still being only 21 years of age.
Arsenal want new additions upfront after some unconvincing performances from Danny Welbeck this season, plus concerns over the long-term fitness of injury-prone attacking players Theo Walcott and Mesut Ozil.
