Arsenal is on the verge of signing Arturo Vidal, as they are prepared to make him an offer worth £21.3m.
The Juventus midfielder helped lead his team to the UEFA Champions League final, which they eventually lost to FC Barcelona.
Vidal scored seven goals for Juventus while dishing out four assists, and the Chile international is reported to be friends with Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez.
Sanchez just finished his first season with the Gunners, and he turned out to be a successful signing as he led the team in scoring with 16 goals.
They are currently playing together in the Copa America tournament for Chile, and they have already advanced to the semifinals.
Their friendship is rumored to be a deciding factor for Vidal choosing to transfer to Arsenal.
Arsenal is hoping to bolster their midfield depth after finding their forward of the future in Sanchez.
The Gunners will look to continue challenging for the Premier League title after finishing the 2014-15 season in third place.
