Spanish publication Marca says Serie A side Juventus, who have lost Carlos Tevez to Boca Juniors, have already sold Chile captain Vidal, but won’t reveal his new club until after the Copa America.
Arsenal are the latest club to be linked with Vidal, 28, who has hit the headlines recently after being charged with drink-driving after crashing his Ferrari while at the tournament in his homeland.
Vidal’s Chile compatriot Alexis Sanchez is believed to have been asked to try and persuade the player, who was heavily linked with a move to Manchester United last summer, to make a £21.3million move to The Emirates.
Marca, however, reports a deal has already been wrapped up, but Vidal’s destination and the details of the transfer are a secret until after the conclusion of the tournament on July 4.
Vidal, who is joint-top scorer at the Copa America with three goals, is currently preparing for Tuesday’s semi-final clash with Peru in Santiago.
