Chelsea FC ready to sign quality Chile attacker this summer – report
Chelsea FC will make a move to sign Arturo Vidal from Bayern Munich this summer, according to reports
Chelsea FC will make a move to sign Arturo Vidal from Bayern Munich in the summer transfer window, according to reports in Italy.
Italian outlet Tuttomercatoweb, as quoted by the Daily Mirror, is reporting that the Blues are ready to make a move to sign the 30-year-old Chile star ahead of next season.
The Blues have long been linked with a move to sign Vidal and Conte has publicly spoken of his admiration of the Chile international in recent months.
Conte knows Vidal well, after having worked with the attacker during the pair’s time spent at Juventus together.
According to the same story, Bayern Munich could now be willing to let Vidal leave the club for a reasonable price now that he has turned 30.
Vidal has scored six goals and made two assists in 19 Bundesliga games so far this season.
Chelsea FC are likely to be on the lookout for significant reinforcements in the summer transfer window after a disappointing run in the Premier League this season.
The Blues won the title in Conte’s first campaign in charge last term but they have struggled to find consistent form this term, and are currently outside of the top four as the race for Champions League qualification hots up.
