Transfer Latest: Barcelona Look to Hijack Arturo Vidal Deal
Arturo Vidal could be on his way to Camp Nou this summer.

Spanish club FC Barcelona became a hot topic in this transfer window after they hijacked Roma’s deal and signed Malcom. And despite being criticised, it looks like Barcelona are now all set to hijack Inter Milian’s deal to sign Bayern midfielder, Arturo Vidal.

Barcelona keeps a keen eye on Arturo Vidal.

Barcelona lost two midfielders Andres Iniesta and Paulinho in this transfer window. Thus, they are desperately in search to replace them. They have signed Arthur Melo to fill in one of the voids. And the Chile midfielder might be their fourth signing of the summer.

In order for FC Barcelona to compete for major honours on multiple fronts though, more quality and depth is perhaps needed to launch a sustained assault in the upcoming campaign.

According to respected Sky Sports Italy journalist, Gianluca Di Marzio, their search for midfield reinforcements has taken them to Vidal. Inter Milan said to have previously been in pole position to take Vidal. But the negotiations might have broken down after Barcelona showed their interest to sign the midfielder.

Di Marzio claims Barcelona have swooped in. They could be on the verge of reaching an agreement with the 31-year-old, as they’re said to be ‘very close’. The deal is likely to cost them €30 million.

Arturo Vidal, who could even travel to Barcelona ‘in the coming hours’ for a medical, emerged as a fresh target for Valverde’s side after negotiations for Paris Saint-Germain’s Adrien Rabiot stalled.

Moreover, Vidal could be the ideal replacement of Paulinho for Barcelona. He offers energy, tenacity and defensive coverage in midfield.

Along with the likes of Ivan Rakitic, Sergio Busquets, Arthur and Coutinho, the team looks well balanced to challenge for all the titles next season.
