Arturo Vidal is one of Europe’s most revered midfield talents at present and if rumours circulating today are to be believed, then the Chilean may be about to link up with his fellow countryman Alexis Sanchez at Arsenal next season.
Journalist with Directv, Hernán Feler has made an unequivocal statement via Twitter that Vidal will move to north-London from Juventus following this summer’s Copa America, saying that ‘everything is closed.’

We will see if this deal should come to pass following the Copa America next summer but for now at least it looks as though the Chilean is going to end up at the Emirates after reaching this year’s Champions League final.
The 28-year-old has made 28 league appearances for Juve this season, scoring seven goals along the way as well as featuring in all but one of the Serie A side’s Champions League fixtures on their journey to the final.
Vidal offers Arsenal a technically gifted player mixed with a fantastic work-rate and engine. He has risen to new heights this season and if Arsenal are to capture the ex-Bayer Leverkusen man they will do so with him in the prime of his career.
