Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has let it be known that he is indeed interested in signing Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal after the Gunners have been strongly linked with a move for the 28-year-old after having been strongly linked with the Chilean international these past two weeks, with reports already suggesting he had agreed terms to move to the Emirates.
And while Wenger would not go into specifics during a press conference he did admit to being a fan of Alexis Sanchez’s international teammate.
‘Yes, I like Vidal,’ he admitted.
‘Are we in transfer mode? I say no.
Vidal looks as though he will be leaving Turin this summer as the Italians look to sign real Madrid free agent Sami Khedira, but with Liverpool also interested in the midfield enforcer Wenger may have to pay more than he wants to get Vidal to move to north London.
