Arsenal will soon learn whether or not they can land highly-rated transfer target Paulo Dybala, as Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini is set to make a decision.
The Italian club’s coach, Giuseppe Iachini, has revealed that his superior will decide just how much Dybala is worth, despite the fact that the player has a mooted release clause worth £31 million.
The 21-year-old recently revealed that it would be a dream to move to the Emirates Stadium, and so a deal is certainly feasible if Arsene Wenger is willing to pay Zamparini’s ransom.
The Frenchman's readiness to do as such may have increased due to the Gunners' recent performances, with Wenger's side having failed to make a positive impression in the Premier League this term.
This weekend's disappointing defeat at the hands of Stoke City has placed Arsenal's manager under even more pressure, and he'll likely be busy discerning where his team can improve during the January transfer window.
