Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri is ready to allow the 28 year old Chilean to leave as he seeks to keep hold of Paul Pogba for one more campaign and this has led the way clear for the Gunners to land the former Bayer Leverkusen man.

Vidal has proven a massive success since moving to Turin four years ago, playing a key role in Juventus winning four successive Serie A titles, though his impact in 2014/15 was perhaps less tangible than in previous campaigns.

Arsenal must first meet Juve’s £29.2m valuation but that doesn’t appear to be a big ask given that the north London side are in a financially strong position at present.

Arturo Vidal may well be tempted by a move to the Premier League and the presence of national team colleague Alexis Sanchez at the Emirates Stadium will surely be extra motivation in terms of a move to join Arsenal.
