Arsenal are considering making an approach for Juventus forward Paulo Dybala if they fail to extend Martin Odegaard’s stay at the Emirates, according to Sport.
The Catalan newspaper claims that Gunners boss Mikel Arteta “would be delighted” to sign the Argentinian international were he to be interested in making the switch to London.
Odegaard’s future remains up in the air as it is still not known whether Real Madrid would prefer to keep him when his loan spell at Arsenal expires at the end of the season.
The Gunners look to be putting contingency plans in place and Dybala is definitely an intriguing alternative. The 26-year-old is closing in on the final twelve months of his contract in Turin and he is unlikely to be handed an extension.
Juve are reportedly holding out for around €50m (£43m) for the striker but they may be forced to compromise considering his situation. There is likely to be competition for the Argentine, with Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain, Chelsea and Spurs all having been linked in recent days.
