Tottenham have reportedly entered the race to sign Arsenal target Paulo Dybala, who has been earning rave reviews for his performances for Palermo this season.
According to talkSPORT, Mauricio Pochettino, who is keen to sign a striker during the January transfer window has turned his attention towards the Argentine striker, who has been in impressive form for the Serie A side this season.
Arsene Wenger admitted recently that apart from Ipswich Town defender Tyrone Mings the club is also tracking few other young players and with the striker garnering so much attention in recent months, the Frenchman might be tempted to make an approach for the youngster.
There are bound to be plenty of clubs interested in the young Argentine forward, who has scored seven goals in just 14 games this season and has been likened to compatriot Sergio Aguero, who is currently one of the top strikers in world football.
Apart from Arsenal and Tottenham, Premier League rivals Liverpool are also monitoring his progress with a view to a move during the January transfer window. The report claims that Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain are also interested in signing the striker.
However, it looks like the Gunners will have a slight edge when it comes to sign the young striker, as he is aware of the interest from Wenger's team and has admitted that, it will be great to come to England and play in the Premier League with Arsenal.
However, the striker recently put all the interested clubs on alert after revealing that he is in negotiations with Palermo over a new contract and he expects to reach an agreement with the club sooner rather than later.
Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham will have to act fast, if they want to have any chance of signing the striker before the Serie A club add a hefty release-clause in his new contract.
"With the director and with Zamparini we are talking about renewal, I think we will come to an agreement," Dybala said, as quoted by the Express.
"The president said I'm worth 40 million? I do not think so, my duty is to take the field. To know that someone like that thinks highly of me fills me with pride," the young Argentinean added.
