Chelsea set to finalise deal for Charles Aranguiz

The Chile international was in sensational form for the national side and helped them lift the Copa America title for the first time in history and could now be signing for the Blues

Reports claim that the reigning English champions may have already beaten Arsenal to the signature of Aranguiz. The Internacional midfielder is seen as the best replacement for the likes of Ramires and Jon Obi Mikel with Jose Mourinho not really happy with the way the duo performed throughout the last campaign.

And although Arsenal did approach Aranguiz first, the 26 year old is more keen on joining the Blues where he feels that he will be able to play his natural game.

Moreover, Obi Mikel is believed to be already discussing terms over a move to Fenerbahce which means that signing the Chile international will definitely add depth to the squad and ensure that the Nigerian’s departure leaves no gaping hole in the midfield.
