Published Add your comment

Palermo striker Paulo Dybala has dropped the biggest hint yet that he could be on his way out of the club by admitting that the final 10 games of the season could be his last for the club.

The Argentine has been in superb form for the Serie A outfit this campaign and netted his 13th goal over the weekend, but his consistent performances have caught the eye of several suitors.

Arsenal and Juventus interest

According to numerous reports, Premier League side Arsenal and Serie A champions Juventus are the two clubs most interested in signing the 21-year-old, with Palermo's president stating that offers have come in from both clubs.

Maurizio Zamparini stated in an interview that both clubs had already offered around £30million for the striker, but those comments were dismissed by Arsene Wenger when he was confronted by a reporter about the quotes.

Despite all the talk, Dybala himself had stayed moderately quiet surrounding his future, but he admitted this weekend that he could in fact be playing his last games for the club.

Dybala Speaks

When asked about his personal future, Dybala was reluctant to reveal too much and confirmed that he ignores the majority of speculation, however, he dropped a big hint at the end by claiming that he wants to give everything for Palermo in the last 10 games as he's aware that they could be his last.

"I try not to think too much about the transfer market," he told Dia Dia.

"I am completely focused on the last 10 games, because they could be my last here."

Barca Interest

It's also believed Liverpool and FC Barcelona could be monitoring the 21-year-old, and speculation was high when he was spotted at the Nou Camp earlier this season.

However, he confirmed that he was only there as a spectator and nothing else.

He added: "I went to Camp Nou merely as a spectator. There were a lot of great players out on the pitch, it was a great game and it helped me because I learned a lot from watching it."
