Arturo Vidal's agent has addressed rumours linking his client to Arsenal.

The agent of Chile midfielder Arturo Vidal has indicated there is no move to Arsenal in the pipeline.

Fernando Felicevich is quoted by Italian website Tuttomercatoweb, stating that he has not been approached by The Gunners over the Juventus ace.

He said: "There was no contact between Vidal and the Arsenal."

Felicevich also represents Vidal's Chilean international teammate Alexis Sanchez, and his silence prior to now has to some extent helped fuel rumours.

Vidal is in the midst of a Copa American tournament in his homeland, and has helped Chile to the final, where they are bidding to win it for the first time in their history.

The Arsenal links could have been a distraction, and that may be why Felicevich is attempting to put them to bed now.

The Mail had reported that Arsenal had agreed a deal with Juventus for the midfielder over the weekend, but The Telegraph reported 24 hours ago that the club are not interested in making a move.
