Premier League rivals Southampton and Arsenal are interested in signing Palermo hot shot Paulo Dybala next summer according to the Daily Star.

The Argentinian youngster, who has been dubbed the 'new Sergio Aguero' by his current employers, has been in good form so far this season with four goal in 11 appearances.

This good form has seen the highly-rated 20-year-old linked to two Premier League club's with a proven track record of developing young talent.

Attractive proposition

That would make both of them an attractive proposal for the striker who might feel the time is right to make a move abroad with his team lying in the bottom half of Seria A.

Having developed into one of Palermo's main centre forwards this season, a move to England might not be top of his priorities, however he might also see it as the perfect time for a new challenge.

With his current club unlikely to push for the title in Italy, a move to one of the more commended club's in England for helping young player's progress would be an ideal choice for a striker with huge potential.

International company

Although a move to a foreign country might be daunting for many a young South American, the forward would not be alone should he make the move to either Arsenal or Southampton.

A number of his countrymen are already plying their trade in the Premier League and would no doubt offer him support should he decide to move.

Sergio Aguero, Pablo Zabaleta, Angel Di Maria and Martin Demichelis are all part of the full Argentina squad and play their football in England. A move there would represent a logical move for the youngster with the support he would receive.

Chance to progress

Another factor to consider for Dybala is that his game is likely to improve should he choose to move.

Both Southampton and Arsenal are renowned for developing young talent and if he wants to reach the potential he clearly has, a move to one of these two is a no-brainer.

The man dubbed the 'new Sergio Aguero' could do a lot worse than playing in the same league as the man himself, and being able to model himself of the Manchester City star up close could prove to be an attractive proposition.

After smashing the records of Mario Kempes at his first club Instituto, those interested will know they would have a natural finisher amongst their ranks if they were to secure his signing.
