ALMOST DONE: Chelsea set to wrap up deal for world class midfielder

Antonio Conte is reportedly interested in adding another new face to his squad after managing to secure the signing of Ross Barkley from Everton on Friday.

Chelsea maintained their hopes of finishing in the top two of the Premier League on Wednesday evening as they secured a point against Arsenal in a pulsating 2-2 draw at the Emirates stadium.

The Blues will now have FA Cup action and perhaps some transfer business to take care of before the next round of fixtures in the league next weekend.

And based on a report by ITASportPress, Chelsea are now targeting a deal to sign Arturo Vidal from Bayern Munich.

The Chilean international worked with Antonio Conte during his time at Juventus between 2011 and 2014, prior to his move to the Bundesliga.

With Chelsea still in search of more midfield security, the Blues manager is keen on a reunion with Vidal at Stamford Bridge.

Thus, Conte is reportedly preparing a £33million offer for the 30-year-old even though it is significantly short of Bayern’s asking price which is £53million.

Summer signing Tiémoué Bakayoko has failed to live up to expectations so far this season and as a result, Chelsea are interested in another new addition in midfield who would be the club’s second signing of the winter after the arrival of Barkley.
