Chelsea are planning to sign Bayern Munich’s Arturo Vidal in the January transfer window. The midfielder had already played under Antonio Conte in his Juventus days and he is one of Conte’s favourite players.
The Blues made a huge sum recently with Oscar’s transfer to a Chinese team. Conte told that he will be spending money sensibly in the transfer window and sign only if he really needs the player.
Conte already have the squad depth he would have wanted in Chelsea. Signing Arturo Vidal can be a massive upgrade to his squad. Playing Vidal in the heart of Conte’s midfield will make them one of the best teams in the league.
Chelsea are trying to keep the transfer fee in the region of 35 million. Reports from Germany states that the Bavarians are expecting an amount more than 40 million for the player.
If the transfer goes through, then it can become one of the best transfer deals by Antonio Conte.
