According to the latest reports, Arsenal are preparing a staggering £44m bid for Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal. Wenger is said to be very keen on this deal as Arsenal look to add a power-house type midfielder who can dictate and stabilize the central midfield.
With Arteta not getting any younger, Arsenal are in search for a deep lying playmaker to replace the Spaniard on a permanent basis. Vidal fits the bill perfectly. He has all the required attributes like dribbling, shooting, work-rate and also the defensive skills. Addition of the Chilean will surely add stability to Arsenal’s central midfield.
Manchester United are also interested in signing the 27-year-old, but Arsenal are considered as favorites in this transfer race as they can offer champions league football while Manchester United can’t offer any European action for next season.
