Arteaga: 'Palermo, I'll be next Dybala'

Palermo's new signing Manuel Arteaga says he wishes to follow in Paulo Dybala's footsteps and describes his style of play.

The 21-year-old is the latest young talent picked up by the Rosanero, who will register him officially from Zulia FC on January 4.

The player is already in Italy and has already released his first interview, published today on Palermo's official site.

“Coming here has its challenges, but I want to do things properly,” said Arteaga. “Let's act calmly, with patience.

“I saw our last two matches. I saw the 4-1 victory against Frosinone.

“It's a good team with good players, but being able to play next to Franco [Vazquez] and [Alberto] Gilardino is a source of pride for me.

“I'll try learning a lot from both. I've seen that great players have been here, like [Paulo] Dybala. Now he left for Juventus, but I want to score a lot like he did.

“I like to play behind the defenders and run a lot there, with the support of the whole team. I can kick with both legs and I'm strong with my headers too.

“I'll speak on the pitch, in any case I'm very chilled and happy to be here.”
