With Carlos Tévez set to make a triumphant return to Boca Juniors this summer, reports in Italy suggest that Juventus has joined the race for Argentine wunderkind Paulo Dybala to replace him.

The 21-year-old forward has established himself as one of Europe’s hottest prospects with 13 goals for Serie A team Palermo this season, and Juve will hope that the €5 million they intend to recoup for Tévez’s services will go some way towards paying his monumental asking price.

With Premier League giants Arsenal and Chelsea hot in pursuit of the prodigy – who has a €50 million price tag – Juventus will likely need to splash out more than their rumored bid of up to €33 million.

Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini put Dybala firmly in the shop window this morning with claims that four clubs, including Juventus and Arsenal, have already placed bids on the table.
