Arsenal transfers: Arturo Vidal’s agent responds to Gunners talk

Arturo Vidal's agent denies claims that his client could be set to join Arsenal from Juventus this summer

Arturo Vidal’s agent has rubbished reports suggesting that his client could be set to join Arsenal this summer by insisting that he has not been in contact with the north London club.

Speculation linking Vidal with a big-money transfer to Emirates Stadium has gathered pace in recent days, with Alexis Sanchez reported to have been trying to convince the Juventus star to opt for a move to the Premier League outfit.

Some outlets claimed that Vidal’s move to Arsenal was all but complete earlier this week as Arsene Wenger looks to bolster his attacking options at Emirates Stadium.

However, Vidal’s agent Fernando Felicevich has denied that Vidal could be on his way to Arsenal this summer during an interview with Radio AM1190 America.

Felicevich is quoted as saying by Football Italia: “I have never had any contact with Arsenal about Arturo.”

Vidal, 28, was in fine form for Juventus last season, scoring seven goals and making four assists in 28 Serie A games for the Italian side and helping them to reach the Champions League final.
