Arsenal are set to be handed a massive summer transfer blow with fresh reports of Manchester United set to hold talks with one of Arsenal’s prime targets.
According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Manchester United are reportedly set to hold talks with Arturo Vidal’s agent as they look to hijack Arsenal’s efforts to sign the midfielder.
The Juventus midfielder has been in stunning form for the Italian Champions over the last two seasons and was heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford last summer, but the transfer broke down amid concerns over a knee injury suffered by the Chilean.
Arsenal now appears to be in pole position for Vidal’s signature after been alerted by Liverpool’s offer for the midfielder.
Several reports have also claimed the Gunners have agreed a deal with the player over a move in the summer.
But Gazzetta dello Sport claim United have re-ignited their interest in the midfielder and are set to hold talks with his agent Fernando Felicevich who has been in London since last week.
This report is sure to come as a huge blow to Arsenal fans who already believe a deal for the 28-year-old to complete his switch to Arsenal is as good as done.
