Arsenal and Manchester United have reportedly contacted Argentine striker Paulo Dybala’s agent.
According FC Inter NewsArsenal and Manchester United have made contact with the agent of Argentina international Paulo Dybala, who is a free agent this summer.
Dybala, 28, is available for a Bosman transfer after his contract with Juventus expires on June 30. The former Palermo ace has been linked with the who’s who of European football, such as Barcelona, Real Madrid and Manchester City. , among others, all credited with interest to him at some point in recent months.
Arsenal and Manchester United had also been linked with a move for Dybala not so long ago, but things had become quiet on that front in recent weeks as both clubs focused on other targets. Meanwhile, the former Juventus ace looked set to sign for Serie A giants Inter Milan.
However, things have slowed down regarding Dybala’s move to Inter Milan as the Nerazzurri have to eliminate some players from the squad before they can sign the Argentine. He left the door open for other clubs to swoop.
And according to the report, Arsenal and Manchester United have contacted the player’s camp. However, the report adds that the two Premier League clubs have not submitted a bid for Joya but have asked to be kept up to date on his whereabouts and possible move to Inter Milan.
Arsenal have finalized the signing of Gabriel Jesus to strengthen their attack, but Mikel Arteta is looking for another attacking addition. Leeds United ace Raphinha had been a prime target but a move for the Brazilian is no longer on the cards, leaving the Gunners to consider other options.
While Dybala would hardly represent a similar alternative, his quality and availability on a free transfer would make him an option for Arsenal to consider.
As for Manchester United, they also need attacking reinforcements this summer, having seen Edinson Cavani, Jesse Lingard and Juan Mata leave as free agents. Otherwise, Cristiano Ronaldo is seriously considering his future at Old Trafford.
