According to Fox Sports journalist Christian Martin, Barcelona midfielder Arturo Vidal will be a ‘perfect fit’ at Chelsea as a direct replacement for Jorginho. The Chilean has been tipped to leave Barcelona this summer.
“I’d love to see Arturo Vidal at Chelsea. I don’t have that information [but] he’s good, I like him”, Martin told Red Gol.
“At Chelsea, Arturo it would be a perfect fit, hopefully it will happen, his football would fit in well, we’ll talk to [Vidal’s agent] Fernando Felicevich later, it would be good.”
“Arturo seems to me a sensational player. I’m not saying it because he is Chilean, I think he would fit in very well anywhere.
“Arturo knows more about Italy, I don’t know if his past in Juventus stops him from going to Inter, but according to what I talked to him, he would always be attracted to coming to the Premier League.”
“In the Premier League he would fit greatly,” Martin added. “Arturo has quality, he has a break, he has strength, he has an attitude, playing him next to [N’Golo] Kanté would be tremendous.
“The truth is that Jorginho hasn’t succeeded as we expected, hopefully it can happen with Arturo. It’d be a nice challenge, because he’s not afraid to change either.”
