Prepare for a bidding war.

Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini claims Arsenal have joined Juventus in making an offer for star forward Paulo Dybala.

Dybala, who has scored 13 goals and provided 10 assists in Serie A this season, has also been linked to Manchester United ahead of the summer transfer window.

“Dybala is not Sergio Aguero but the new (Lionel) Messi,” said Zamperini. “He’s not an out-and-out striker, but operates in every area of the field, like Messi.

“Will he stay? No, because the player and his agent aspire to a big club, and they’re right to do so. I’ve already received at least four offers.

“Two were from Italian clubs, and two were from abroad, and they include Arsenal and Juventus.”
