Arturo Vidal's agent planning Premier League talks

Fresh reports are gathering momentum that suggest Juventus star Arturo Vidal could be on his way to the Premier League - Arsenal and Manchester United are favourites - as early as this summer.

Italian newspaper Gazzetta Dello Sport claims that Vidal’s agent, Fernando Felicevich, was at the FA Cup final on Saturday evening as Arsenal beat Aston Villa 4-0 to record their second victory in as many years at Wembley.

It should be noted that Felicevich is also Alexis Sanchez’s representative, so it’s perfectly plausible that there was a less conspiratorial reason for his presence at the game.

However, Gazzetta claim that Felicevich is in England this week on transfer business too, with talks planned with Manchester United and Arsenal officials.

The talks will simply be to determine whether either club is interested in the €32m-rated Vidal this summer, and the amount of money they’d be willing to offer Juventus.

That should allow both parties to establish whether a deal is realistic or a non-starter. For Juve’s part, they reportedly already have a replacement for the Chilean midfielder lined up in the shape of Chelsea playmaker Oscar.

The Brazilian has been on the fringes of the starting eleven through the second half of Chelsea’s title-winning campaign, and has long been identified as a Juventus transfer target.

What do you think Arsenal and Manchester United fans - how much do you think Vidal is worth?
