Charles Aránguiz scout report: Arsenal in for classy defender

Published Add your comment

Aránguiz plays in the centre of park for club and country, and he currently plays for Internacional in Brazil. The Chilean caught the eye of many at last year’s World Cup after a string of impressive performances for La Roja helping them reach the last 16.

Arsenal have enough talent going forward but are short of class just behind them; Mikel Arteta and Jack Wilshere are good but Aránguiz would bring something new to the table for Arsene Wenger. The midfielder has a workman like approach to his game not letting the ball evade him at any given opportunity.

Charles Aránguiz will be on show this summer as his nation host the Copa America with the weight of expectation sitting high on their shoulders. He had shown last summer in Brazil that he can excel when platting for his country, Aránguiz will be hoping to bring that form into this year’s tournament.

The 26-year-old has played for six clubs in professional starting for Cobreloa in Chile. From a midfield role Aránguiz has done well with getting in on the goalscoring action, having scored 43 goals in his 276 professional appearances. He has earned 34 caps for his country scoring four goals in the process.

Maybe it’s only a matter of time before Aránguiz joins The Gunners? The South American man has been linked with Arsenal for a lengthy period of time and would come at a cheap cost, which is what Wenger likes.
