Arsene Wenger has laid to rest the idea of a possible partnership between Arsenal and Juventus midfielder, Arturo Vidal.
Following Arsenal’s 4-0 thrashing of Aston Villa in the FA Cup Final on Saturday, Arsenal’s boss was quick to shut down any rumours regarding Vidal.
Speaking to the media after the match, he said,
“Arturo Vidal? You must be from Chile!
“We have good midfielders and at the moment we are not looking at Arturo Vidal.”
While Vidal is an interesting option in the midfield, Wenger has a point when he says the Gunners possess many high quality options at that position.
The likes of Aaron Ramsey, Jack Wilshere, Santi Cazorla, Francis Coquelin, Mathieu Flamini, and captain Mikel Arteta are all on the roster and competing for playing time in the midfield.
The Gunners also boast a very impressive academy, with young midfielders being developed for the future.
Adding Vidal would be an unnecessary move for the Gunners right now.
