Arsenal were reportedly offered the chance to sign Argentina star Paulo Dybala this summer.
90Min reports how Dybala is being touted at a number of Premier League clubs. And one of the clubs getting a call regarding his potential availability is Arsenal.
It is claimed that Arsenal, along with Tottenham, Newcastle and Chelsea, have all been probed by Dybala representatives.
The Argentine is said to have a number of clauses in his contract that allow for a move this summer.

Dybala has had a good season with Roma under Jose Mourinho. He has scored 16 goals and has proved a good acquisition since joining from Juventus.
However, he is often mentioned in summer transfer windows and has been linked with a move to England on more than one occasion.
90Min claim there are concerns among English clubs that Dybala isn’t really up for the Premier League.
But with a good season behind him and the money on offer in England these days, Dybala might well be tempted to finally push for a Premier League move.
TBR’s view: Arsenal don’t need Dybala at the moment
While Paulo Dybala is a fine player himself, over the years he hasn’t quite reached the heights that some have come to expect of him.
Having been compared to Lionel Messi as a young player, Dybala hasn’t come close to reaching the level Messi has shown throughout his career. That’s not to say Dybala hasn’t had a good career, but he’s below average.
Signing a player like Dybala would be a huge risk for Arsenal at the moment. At 29, he’s not quite in the profile of the player Mikel Arteta, who is his main choice. Granted, his experience might help.
Arsenal should look at other players. And while Dybala’s name will appeal to some fans, there will be better options out there.
