Chelsea join Arsenal in the race for Charles Aranguiz [Chilean reports]

If you believe the Chilean press, two Premier League giants are fighting over World Cup star Charles Aranguiz.

In recent weeks, Arsenal have been heavily linked with Aranguiz.

Arsene Wenger has reportedly been watching Aranguiz closely and even checked in with Alexis Sanchez on his Chilean international team mate.

On Wednesday, there are new suggestions that Chelsea have joined Arsenal in the race for Aranguiz.

Emol.com report that Chelsea are also tracking Aranguiz and could also make a move this summer.

Aranguiz has even referenced both Arsenal and Chelsea when talking with the press and the 25-year-old midfielder has not been shy in coming forward.

First off, Aranguiz said: “It would be a dream to play for Arsenal”. And, he is also quoted saying: “If Chelsea would want me, I’d go to them immediately”.

Internacional have denied receiving a bid from either Chelsea or Arsenal and continue to protest that Aranguiz is a key player.

Neither Chelsea or Arsenal are likely to be put off by the fee needed to sign Charles Aranguiz. Video evidence below.
