Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal has been linked with a move to the Premier League this summer and Arsenal are through to be the front-runners in the chase for the coveted Chilean.
The Champions league finalists are keen to keep hold of Paul Pogba this season and would consider the sale of Arturo Vidal to finance moves for Cavani and Dybala. The Chilean is valued at £25m and would be a perfect fit for several Premier League sides.
According to Italian outlet, Calciomercatoweb, Arsenal are pursuing the Juventus star, who would be keen to line up alongside his compatriot Alexis Sanchez, at the Emirates.
Regardless of whether it comes off or not, Arsenal must do everything in their power to sign the Chilean, and here is why –
World Class quality
Arturo Vidal is a world class player and will improve almost every midfield in World football. The Chilean is one of the few complete central midfielders around and contributes to both attack and defence equally.
For any club aiming to win the title and do well in the Champions league, the addition of Vidal should be a no brainer.
Vidal is a proven winner. The Chilean has won several domestic trophies with Juventus and Arsenal could use his experience. Despite all the talent at Arsenal, Wenger’s men have often fallen short because of the lack of experience and leadership at crucial phases of the season.
Plugging the gaps
Finally, Arsenal are in desperate need of a midfielder like Vidal. Someone who can contribute defensively as well as offensively. Alongside Ramsey and Cazorla, Vidal could form a midfield partnership good enough to rival any Premier League side.
Arsenal have been linked with several box to box midfielders like Schneiderlin and Kondogbia, but it is beyond doubt that Vidal tops that list in terms of sheer ability and experience.
