Juventus have made an initial offer for Palermo striker Paulo Dybala according to club owner Maurizio Zamparini.

Zamparini previously confirmed that offers had been made for the Argentine forward and that the race to sign the player was open.

“I’ve received concrete offers for Dybala,” Zamparini told Gr Parlamento.

“I was offered €30m by two clubs, but I said that I want €40m. I even got [an offer] for [Franco] Vazquez and Dybala together.

“Juventus? Yes, they could take him [Dybala]. I’m in contact with [Giuseppe] Marotta, I know they’re interested, but they must hurry, as there are other teams after him.

“After Easter I’ll meet Dybala’s agent who is working hard for the lad’s future. Will he remain in Italy? It’s 50-50 at the moment.”

Speaking today to Radio Marte, the Palermo patron further confirmed the race for Dybala may be between Arsenal and Juventus.

“Juventus and Arsenal have already made offers,” Zamparini told Radio Marte.

“[Pierpaolo] Triulzi, the lad’s agent will be in Italy on Friday. I’m asking for more than €40m.

“Dybala would prefer to stay in Italy, but among the British teams, Arsenal are the first choice of the lad because of the way [manager Arsene] Wenger’s team plays.”
