Juventus are set to test Arsenal's resolve in keeping youngster Jack Wilshere at the club, according to the Metro. 

As reported earlier, United have reportedly agreed personal terms with the Chilean international and they are willing to pay him a massive £182k-a-week in order to join Old Trafford.

With Vidal set to leave the club, Juventus are now ready to begin their hunt for a new central-midfielder to partner Paul Pogba and Andrea Pirlo, and they are turning their attention to Arsenal's local-hero, Jack Wilshere.

The 22-year-old has been with The Gunners since he was eight-years old, and he has broken into the first-team over the past few years, but his progression was seriously dented due to missing 17-months with a serious ankle injury.

It was during a pre-season game at the Emirates Stadium when Wilshere hobbled off, and it was later revealed that he would miss a whopping year of his career.

That 12 months then turned into 17 months, but since his return to fitness, the Englishman has still been fragile and has still had some concerns over his ankles.

Wilshere in the news 

With on the field injuries a worry, Wilshere has also been hitting the headlines off the field as well for being pictured smoking on two occasions, despite manager Arsene Wenger warning him about his lifestyle choices.

Wenger has warned Wilshere that he must kick on now and show progression from the teenager that broke onto the scene, and with serious midfield options at Wenger's disposal, the 22-year-old's first-team spot is in serious jeopardy.

Wilshere will be challenging alongside the likes of; Aaron Ramsey, Mesut Ozil, Santi Cazorla, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain for central-midfield roles, and that has given Juve hope.

The Serie A champions are reportedly talking to several English agents in order to see if the Premier League side would be willing to part with their starlet, but with Wilshere once saying he will never leave the Emirates Stadium, they may have to look elsewhere for a Vidal replacement.
