Arsene Wenger has denied suggestions that Arsenal have made an offer for Palermo star Paulo Dybala.

Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini claimed that both the Gunners and Juventus had made offers for the 21-year-old striker.

But Wenger has rubbished Zamparini’s claims and insists that Arsenal have no interest in Dybala.

"Ask him to show you the offer," Wenger told reporters on Thursday when asked about Dybala’s claims. "(We are) not at all (interested)."

Zamparini had suggested that Dybala would move to Arsenal if he were to leave Serie A for the Premier League.

"Juventus and Arsenal have made offers for Dybala," he told Radio Marte. "His agent will be in Italy on Friday. I want more than 40 million euros ($43.29m) for him.

"Dybala would rather stay in Italy but, from the English sides, Arsenal are his first choice because of how Wenger’s team plays."
