Internazionale are closing in on a move for Arturo Vidal, as he is set to reject Manchester United and Arsenal in favor of the Italian side as reported by talkSPORT.
Vidal has established himself as one of the best midfielders during his time at Juventus and Bayern Munich over the past few years. The energetic midfielder has made a reputation for himself with his combative style of play and powerful forward runs into the box from deep.
These qualities have attracted the attention of the Italian outfit as they hope to strengthen their team this summer. Now according to Talksport, the new manager Luciano Spalletti hopes to add the Chilean into the Inter ranks as he prepares his team for 2017/18 season and look to challenge for the Champions League places.
The Chilean has been consistently linked with a move to England over the last few years, with Arsenal and Manchester united as mooted destination. However, Inter have swooped in recently and look to lure the 30-year-old to San Siro, with reports suggesting that a contract has already been agreed between the two parties.
The Nerazzurri seem very keen to complete this move which will help turn this Inter side into a competitive team after several seasons of mediocrity.
However, this transfer might be expensive for Inter as Bayern are adamant that they want to keep the midfielder and a bid of at least around £45 million might be necessary to tempt the Bavarian giants into selling him. It will be interesting to see if Vidal will be able to lead Inter to their former glory days if he joins the fallen giants.
With rivals Milan spending freely, Napoli looking very impressive and Juventus and Roma still competing at the top, it will be very difficult for The Nerazzurri to battling it out at the highest level in Serie A with their current squad. Nevertheless, a strong signing like Vidal will be a statement of intent from the club looking to break back into the class of elites.
