We have been linked with a move for Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal recently, and a deal is set to be concluded soon, according to the Metro.
The report claims we have agreed personal terms on a five year deal with the 28-year-old, with DirecTV journalist Hernan Feler confirming the news. Feler was the one who first broke Alexis Sanchez’s move to Arsenal, so it seems he is someone to be taken seriously.
In a separate report from The Telegraph, we have allegedly agreed a £21m fee for the player with Juventus. The Metro suggests that the deal is all but done, and that it will be announced following the conclusion of the Copa America.
With the Serie A champions having already secured the signatures of Sami Khedira (via the Metro) and Roberto Pereyra (via Juventus.com), they have plenty of options in midfield and could already be preparing for life without the box-to-box star.
The Chilean international has apparently been convinced to join us by our sensational signing Alexis Sanchez, (via The Independent) who has been waxing lyrical about life in London. He enjoyed a fantastic first season at the Emirates, and it would be fantastic to have his compatriot at the club.
