A bidding war to sign Argentinian sensation Paulo Dybala could be imminent with reports claiming Juventus are to meet with Palermo again in a bid to lure the striker to Turin.
Dybala has been Palermo’s star performer this season, hitting 13 league goals so far to sit only four behind Serie A’s top scorer, compatriot Carlos Tevez, who plays for Juventus.
Earlier this season Zamparini slapped a 40m euros ($43m) price tag on the 21-year-old Dybala. The outspoken Italian businessman hinted in a report by Tuttosport on Thursday that despite interest from Juventus and Roma he is likely to sell to the highest bidder.
“We will sell Dybala by the end of April,” Zamparini told the Italian sports daily.
“In Italy Juventus and Roma are the teams most interested in the lad and he would certainly help them.
“But foreign clubs are also in the mix.”
Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool have all been linked to Dybala but Zamparini said the player’s agent, Pierpaolo Triulzi, will travel Paris as well as London to listen to offers.
Dybala is believed to favour a move to Juventus and Zamparini said another meeting with the Italian champions is also being scheduled.
“Triulzi has the green light from me and is going to Paris and London to listen to offers, then we’ll evaluate them together,” added Zamparini.
“We will also meet with (Juventus general manager Giuseppe) Marotta again. Perhaps he will want to raise his offer.”
Juventus are believed to have baulked at Palermo’s asking price for Dybala with reports suggesting Marotta could offer cash plus a player.
