The reports about Arsenal first looking and at and then closing in on the transfer of the Juventus and Chile international star Arturo Vidal have been growing since the end of last season, and this weekend there has been two different sources claiming that the transfer has already been secured.
Yesterday, as reported by Metro, the journalist who first revealed that the Gunners were going to sign the brilliant forward Alexis Sanchez from Barcelona, Hernan Feler, has told a Chilean radio station that Vidal is ready to come to Arsenal. Apparently a five year contract has been agreed but with the midfielder still involved in the Copa America tournament, I suppose we will have to wait until it ends before he puts pen to paper.
And to add extra weight to this rumour, another Metro report says that sources from Italy have revealed that Arsenal have also agreed a transfer fee of £21 million with the Serie A champions. So it is looking very good for us Gooners and this is all before the transfer window is officially open.
