Juventus are yet to receive a formal offer for Arturo Vidal amid the speculation linking Arsenal with a swoop for the Chile midfielder, the Italian club’s chief executive has said.

The Gunners have been heavily linked with a swoop for the Juventus midfielder in recent days as Arsene Wenger looks to bolster his squad and guide his Arsenal side to a Premier League title challenge next season.

Reports earlier this week claimed that the north London club were in advanced talks to sign Vidal, who helped Juve secure a league and cup double last season.

However, the Italian club’s chief executive Giuseppe Marotta has denied that the Serie A side have received any official offers for either Vidal or Fernando Llorente.

Speaking to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Marotta said: “We have not received any offer for Llorente or Vidal.

“There are no ongoing negotiations for Vidal, who has been the object of desire for half of Europe.”
