Juventus have admitted that Paulo Dybala is going to leave as a free agent at the end of this season and as per the latest reports, he might be on his way to join Arsenal.

Premier League sides like Chelsea, Man City and Spurs have all been linked with the Argentine but surprisingly, he seems to be preferring a move to the Emirates Stadium at the moment.

Juve have tried really hard to make him agree to a new deal but the playmaker wants to leave and the Bianconeri have finally given up hopes. Paulo Dybala has scored 115 goals in 291 appearances for the Serie A side so he will be a gem of a signing as a free agent.

How can Paulo Dybala help Arsenal get better?

The 28-year-old is primarily an attacking midfielder but one of his major aptitudes is that he can play in multiple positions across the front line.

Apart from a No 10, Paulo Dybala can operate as a striker, as a right-winger and also as a supporting striker.

Martin Odegaard is the current No 10 at Arsenal but the Norwegian will have to pull up his socks if Arsenal do manage to bring Paulo Dybala on board in the summer.

There’s also a chance that Mikel Arteta is planning to sign the Argentine as a centre-forward because the manager is actively looking for a new striker. Auba has left and even Lacazette and Nketiah will leave at the end of the season so that position is certainly up for grabs.

He is a multi-functional player with loads of experience so there’s no harm in going after someone like him because the manager can mould him as per his liking in every matchweek.

Do the other teams like Chelsea, Man City and Spurs still stand a chance?

Paulo Dybala seems to have chosen Arsenal over the other three English clubs principally because at the Emirates he will be able to play consistently but if former Italian defender Massimo Brambati is to be believed then Arsenal will only be able to sign him if they can qualify for the Champions League.

Speaking on TMW Radio, as reported by JuventusNews24.com, Brambati says said: “I was told by a person close to the environment that if Arsenal qualifies for the Champions League the Argentine will go there.”

Arsenal are obviously the favourites to finish fourth on the Premier League table but if they fail to qualify for the UCL then Chelsea, Man City and possibly Spurs will automatically move up the pecking order.

A player like Paulo Dybala will very evidently want to play against Europe’s elite so a move to Arsenal will only be a guarantee if they can grab that final Champions League position on the table.

Dybala’s agent is currently in London where he is going to talk with not only Arsenal but also the other interested clubs who want him on board so there’s no way that Edu and co can still back and relax.
