Napoli 'in talks' with Vidal

Napoli “are in negotiations” with Bayer Leverkusen, confirmed the agent of Chile international Arturo Vidal.

The 24-year-old midfielder, full name Arturo Erasmo Vidal Pardo, is the second major reinforcement planned for the Partenopei after a bid for Udinese's Gokhan Inler.

“Of course Vidal could come to Napoli. I can confirm they are in negotiations and a meeting has taken place,” revealed agent Fernando Felicevich in the Corriere dello Sport.

“I'm afraid I cannot add anything more right now.”

The price-tag is thought to be around €12m and Bayer Leverkusen do not want to go lower than that.

Vidal is a versatile figure and can play in several different midfield roles, while he is effective in defence and attack.

He also has an eye for goal thanks to a powerful right-foot shot and brings international experience to a side that will be in the Champions League next season.
