Arsenal have Agreed terms to sign Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal in what could go on to be the most shocking summer transfer deal for Arsenal fans.
This report is according to Calciomercatoweb per the Express, who claim the Gunners were alerted to his availability earlier this week after a reported offer from Liverpool had gone in for the midfielder.
CMW also says Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has gone as far as taken advantage of the fact that the Chilean midfielder shares the same agent as Alexis Sanchez, with the hopes of convincing the Juventus midfielder to make the switch to Arsenal instead.
The Italian champions are said to have an asking price of £25 million, and are looking to cash in on the 27-year-old in the summer rather than fellow midfielder Paul Pogba.
Vidal was part of an impressive Chilean side at the World Cup last summer and has been heavily linked with Manchester United; with manager Louis van Gaal having several bids knocked back last summer and in January.
Arsenal coming into the picture for the midfielder are at an advantage, and Arsenal fans would surely be excited should a move for the South American pass-master materialize.
