The Merseyside club are set to beat rivals Manchester United to the signing of the Chilean.

United’s interest is set to have cooled making a pathway for Liverpool who have already made a £14million offer for the powerhouse midfielder.

Liverpool will be looking to fill the massive hole that departing captain Steven Gerrard is set to leave in the summer. A player of Vidal’s skill would be the perfect replacement for the scouser, he has bundles of energy like a Duracell battery and is capable of playing as a defensive midfielder or in the hole just behind the forwards.

Vidal was linked with a move to Old Trafford last season, only for a persistent knee problem to hamper the move.

The Chilean international has proved though this season that he is back to full fitness, by guiding Juventus to the prospect of a treble with a Champions League final to contest in early June.

The Old Lady are willing to let the former Bayern Leverkusen midfielder leave the club at the end of the season, but they will not sell up for cheap.

According to Italian paper Gazzetta dello Sport, the Turin based club will be looking for clubs to stump up £25 million for the 27-year-old to help fund a replacement.

Reports are suggesting that Chelsea’s Ramires is one of the players on Massimiliano Allegri’s wlshlist.

The Brazilian is said to be deemed surplus to requirements at Chelsea and it seen as a cheaper replacement to the likes of Roma's Radja Nainggolan or Zenit Saint Petersburg's Axel Witsel.
