There were various Arsenal transfer rumours linking the club with a possible transfer capture of the Juventus and Chile international star Arturo Vidal during this summer transfer window before he set off with the Gunners’ and the PFA fans’ player of the season Alexis Sanchez for the Copa America tournament.
Nothing was likely to happen until Chile either won the competition on home soil or were knocked out though, and after they got through to the semi-final where they will take on Peru, that will not happen for at least a week. However, this does give Alexis more time to work his magic and convince the very impressive central midfielder that he should abandon Italy and Serie A for London and the Premier League.
And according to a Metro report, that is exactly what our star striker has been doing. The report claims that the Gunners are now ready to make a transfer offer of just over £21 million as they are aware that Alexis has convinced Vidal to join us.
Perhaps that is why that various transfer rumours are today suggesting that Man United are poised to sign Morgan Schneiderlin from Southampton, a transfer that I really wanted Arsene Wenger to complete. But after seeing Vidal’s fantastic performances this summer, I would be happy to have him instead of the Frenchman. How about you?
