We have once again been linked with a move to sign Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal, and have apparently held talks with his agent recently, as reported by the Metro.
Arsenal transfer news
Vidal shares an agent with our very own Alexis Sanchez, and as the report suggests, agent Fernando Felicevich was invited by our summer signing to attend the FA Cup final this past weekend.
He was there to witness Alexis score the pick of the goals at Wembley, with the 26-year-old smashing home the second in our dominant 4-0 win over Aston Villa.
The Metro claims that we made the most of Felicevich’s visit to London however, holding talks with him regarding Vidal’s availability ahead of next season.
Despite Juventus topping Serie A and making it – at the very least – to the final of the Champions League, the report claims they are willing to listen to offers for the midfielder.

A fee of £28.5m (via the Metro) is believed to be enough, although whether Arsene Wenger would be willing to fork out that much for another box-to-box midfielder remains to be seen.
