According to various reports Chelsea have opened talks with Carlo Ancelotti and Bayern Munich over the signing of Arturo Vidal for a fee of around £34-£40m as Oscar's replacement.

The rumour mill has moved into full swing after the player himself "liked" an Instagram post by another Chelsea site taking about the potential move and it will be interesting to see what happens this month as Antonio Conte looks to sign a replacement for Oscar in our midfield.

As I have been saying on here in recent weeks, the replacement for the departed Brazilian will not be someone of the same style, it will be someone who is able to play as part of the two central midfielders in Conte's new 3-4-3 formation and someone who will provide competition for places against Nemanja Matic and N'Golo Kante.

Vidal played under Conte for three seasons having been signed by Juventus in 2011 and has openly spoken of his admiration for his old manager when asked of a possible move. He said:

"I have also said if I go to war I would take Conte with me. We will see what happens."

Antonio Conte recently spoke of the fact that he has transfer funds to spend after the sale of Oscar, but re-iterated that it must be on someone who would fit into our system. He said:

"For sure, we sold Oscar and we have money to spend but it is important to spend money in the right way. To spend money just to spend money, I don't like this.

I prefer to buy players who can adapt to our system and come in to our team. It is not easy in this window to find this type of player. With the club we are working on this aspect." - Source: The Mirror.

Vidal is a tenacious, hard-working midfielder and would fit into our system with ease. As we have seen with Juventus and now with Bayern Munich, he loves a tackle and has endless energy, the only downside is his theatrical nature which if he does come, should be dealt with because it will not fit in here in the Premier League.

If you think of that fact that we were linked with Radja Nainggolan last summer for a fee of around £50m, this potential signing in my view would be a better deal.

As a Chelsea fan reading this, what do you think of the rumour and a potential move?
