Palermo have announced the signing of Paulo Dybala from Instituto for an undisclosed fee.
Rosanero president Maurizio Zamparini revealed back in April that a deal had been agreed in principle for the forward to join his team ahead of the 2012-13 season, but negotiations have finally been brought to a close.
The 18-year-old, is considered one of South American football's brightest young talents, having recently earned comparisons with Manchester City star and Argentine compatriot Sergio Aguero.
He netted 17 times in 40 appearances for the Primera B Division side, who secured a play-off spot in the division but failed to overcome San Lorenzo, and will now continue his career in Sicily.
However, according to Palermo's official website, formalities are due to be completed in the coming weeks, while Dybala is currently undergoing a medical.
