I don’t know if you recall, but there were Arsenal transfer rumours claiming that the Gunners had already agreed the transfer deal with Juventus to bring their Chilean midfielder Arturo Vidal to the Premier League, before the 28-year old set off to compete in the Copa America.
So with the south American tournament set to finish this weekend, we should soon know if these early rumours were right or wrong. If you believe the latest report from Metro though, the Arsenal fans will definitely have another big signing to celebrate after securing the services of Petr Cech from Chelsea this week.
The report claims that Vidal is pushing Juventus to accept the bid from the Gunners of just over £21 million and that is likely to make sure that the move goes through. At the minute, however, nothing will happen as he and his international team mates like Alexis Sanchez are fully focused on the final against Argentina which could see them lift the trophy for the first time in history.
So Arsenal could soon have two Copa America champions in our team, perhaps as soon as next week.
