The Bayern Munich star would be a sensational signing for Liverpool.

Popular bookmakers SkyBET have installed the Reds as shock favourites in the race to sign Bayern Munich ace Arturo Vidal.

The Chilean is one of the continent's finest box-to-box midfielders, but his future at the Allianz Arena seems uncertain, following the arrival of Corentin Tolisso this summer.

The 30-year-old former Juventus man is aggressive in the utmost, and his tenacious, energetic playing style is infectious to the rest of his team - something that would undoubtedly prove to be an asset to any side.

Ans SkyBET believe that Vidal could be plying his trade at Anfield this season, making Liverpool 4/1 favourites to sign him, and what an incredible acquisition he would be for the Merseyside outfit.

The talented midfielder would offer Jürgen Klopp's side something different from both a defensive and attacking perspective. He possesses all of the attributes necessary to be a success in the Premier League, and he would compliment the likes of Emre Can and Georginio Wijnaldum perfectly.

Whether Klopp manages to bring Vidal to Anfield remain to be seen, but if the German does find a way, it could turn out to be a signing of real significance for Liverpool.
