Arsenal may have been handed a huge boost in their bid to sign Arturo Vidal this summer, with the news that Juventus are close to bringing in Sami Khedira as his replacement, according to CaughtOffside.

The Italian champions appear to have won the race for the German international, who has decided to leave Real Madrid at the end of this contract at the Bernabeu.
This could mean Juve are preparing to lose Vidal in that part of the pitch, with recent speculation suggesting the Chilean international could be moving to the Emirates Stadium after this summer’s Copa America.
Although Arsenal will be disappointed to miss out on Khedira, this could be good news as they line up a move for Vidal to solve their midfield issues.
