Arsenal should enquire into Paulo Dybala's availability if they decide to sell Olivier Giroud to Juventus this summer.

The Daily Mirror reported recently, as per Tuttosport, that the Old Lady could target the France international if they fail in their pursuit of primary target Edinson Cavani.

Whilst Dybala has been in excellent form for Juventus this season, scoring 14 league goals thus far, the youngster's role in Turin could be placed in doubt and see him move elsewhere should a new striker arrive.

Were this to be the case, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger should do all he can to lure him to the Emirates Stadium.

Though Juventus were dumped out of the Champions League by Pep Guardiola’s Bayern Munich last month, Massimiliano Allegri’s side are amongst the strongest teams in European football and require another striker if they are to finally win Europe’s biggest honour.

Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente were allowed to leave for Boca Juniors and Sevilla respectively last summer, and whilst Dybala has been a big hit, the likes of Alvaro Morata and Mario Mandzukic have struggled for consistency.

Cavani is thought to be Allegri’s chief target, but considerable interest elsewhere for the Uruguayan could see him slip through Juventus' fingers.

Such circumstances could see Giroud targeted, the 29-year-old having fallen down the pecking order at the Emirates Stadium due to Danny Welbeck's recent resurgence.

And Dybala would be the perfect replacement for the Gunners' towering striker. The three-time Argentina international is young and wouldn't come cheap, but alongside Arsenal's star duo - Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil - he would thrive and prove money well spent.

Dybala's pace, finishing ability and movement would represent an upgrade on Giroud, who is yet to prove to fans he's capable of steering his side to a Premier League title. 

A new striker has often been tipped as the key to Arsenal's bid to become champions of England once more - and it's about time they done something about it.
