Liverpool look to Champions League finalist as Steven Gerrard replacement – report

Liverpool are targeting Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal as a replacement for club legend Steven Gerrard this summer, according to Gazzetta Dello Sport.

Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard played his last game at Anfield on Saturday in a 3-1 loss to Crystal Palace and Liverpool are now looking at alternatives.

It seems that Juventus will lose one of the two midfield stars this summer, with Pogba continuously linked with Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea amongst others, although it now seems that Arturo Vidal is more likely to leave.

The 27 year old has seven goals and four assists in Serie A this season and his dynamic playing style would really improve the current Liverpool midfield.

Vidal was a target of Manchester United last summer and a move to Anfield would be a real boost for Reds fans, though their failure to qualify for the Champions League next season could be a problem.

Is Arturo Vidal the ideal replacement for Steven Gerrard at Liverpool?
