The Gunners, the Hammers and the Reds will all be keen to bolster their central defensive ranks this summer.

Mikel Arteta and David Moyes are in desperate need of reinforcements in that particular department. Whilst Jurgen Klopp might just be keen to provide more cover for Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez.

According to a report from Yeni Asir, Liverpool are eyeing a shock swoop for the 31-year-old defender. Whilst Turkish media outlet Takvim claims that West Ham want the 79-capped Croatian World Cup finalist.

And Fanatik suggest that Vida could be a target for Arsenal now as well.

The experienced centre-back could be a useful addition for all three clubs mentioned. Although Arsenal and Liverpool fans could argue that they should be aiming for better quality.

 

Stats

The Besiktas ace is well-renowned for being a tenacious, tough-tackling defender. He has also mastered the art of man marking.

In 22 league outings for Besiktas this season, Vida has averaged one tackle, 1.5 interceptions, 2.2 clearances and 0.8 blocks per game. He has also won an average of two aerial duals per game. (Who Scored).

The 31-year-old has averaged 54.4 passes per game this season in the league. With an impressive completion rate of 90.6% (Who Scored).

The one worry for all three Premier League clubs will be that Vida might find it hard to adjust to the frenetic pace of the Premier League considering his age.

According to a report from Yeni Asir, he could be available for just £6 million this summer, however. And that represents really good value.

All that remains to be seen now is which club wins the race to sign him out of Arsenal, West Ham and Liverpool.
