Inter join Juventus & Bayern Munich in race for Bayer Leverkusen's Arturo Vidal - report

The Chile international is continually linked with a move away from the German club and a transfer to Italy could be on the cards, with the Serie A runners-up now in the hunt
Inter have joined Juventus and Bayern Munich in the race for Bayer Leverkusen's Arturo Vidal, La Gazzetta dello Sport reports.

New Inter coach Gian Piero Gasperini is looking to add further reinforcements to his squad after welcoming Ricky Alvarez to Giuseppe Meazza earlier this week, and are preparing for the possible departure of Wesley Sneijder, who has attracted the interest of Manchester United and Malaga.

The 24-year-old Vidal has a contract until the summer of 2012 with Leverkusen, but he's reluctant to sign a new deal, and the German club could decide to cash in on the midfielder this transfer window, with the world champions ready to make a move.

Leverkusen have already turned down a €10 million offer from AC Milan and have informed Bayern Munich that they won't sell Vidal to another Bundesliga club.

Juventus are consequently in pole position to secure the Chilean's services as they are allegedly willing to offer up to €21m, but Inter appear intent on hijacking the deal for the player, who is currently competing at the Copa America in Argentina.
