They say that there is no smoke without fire, but with the number of Arsenal transfer rumours linking the club with a massive number of players in varying positions during every transfer window, the Emirates would have burned down years ago if that was true.
Arsene Wenger certainly does his best to keep us all guessing as well and who can blame him after a few of his transfer targets have been hijacked over the years by the likes of Roman Abramovich the mega rich Chelsea owner? The Frenchman was asked after the FA cup win about Arturo Vidal, one of the biggest stories doing the rounds at the minute and while he laughed the question off he did not deny it.
And there are two bits of evidence that suggest that the Gunners really are going for the Juventus and Chile international midfielder, who would be perfect cover for Francis Coquelin. First of all his agent Fernando Felicevich was at Wembley stadium on Saturday to see Arsenal retain the FA cup, as reported by the Daily Star.
And the Italian champions are on the verge of completing the free transfer of Vidal’s replacement Sami Khedira, according to Goal.com. Now while these two things may be called circumstantial evidence, together they do suggest that Vidal could soon be joining his international team mate Alexis Sanchez in north London. What do you think?
