Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is set to team up with Chile international and Bayern Munich midfielder Arturo Vidal, according to the Sun.
The French man is keen on securing the Chilean move to the Emirates after deciding not to meet an asking price of more than £51 million for Roma’s Radja Nainggolan.
The Sun says Arsenal are poised to table an initial bid of some £34 million for Chile international Vidal, and although Bayern could demand nearer to £40 million it adds that they “can be confident of luring Vidal to Emirates.”
But Arsenal could miss out on defensive target Michael Keane, with the Daily Mail saying Everton are now favourites to land him.
It reports that the Toffees “have jumped to the front of the queue” for Keane, who has turned down the chance to open talks over a new contract with Burnley.
The 23-year-old ex-Manchester United trainee is set to leave at the end of the season — and the Mail says the Toffees are seen as “a progressive club where he can continue to learn his trade.”
