Chilean midfielder Charles Aranguiz has revealed that a move to Arsenal would be a “dream” after he played for his national team at the Emirates Stadium against Brazil, the player was quoted as saying in the Express.
Aranguiz has been linked with a move to Arsenal recently with reports back in Chile stating that Arsene Wenger was keen on partnering him with Alexis Sanchez at club level (via La Tercera).
A move gathered more attention when many realised that Alexis and Aranguiz share the same agent in Fernando Felicevich, who infamously confirmed the Alexis deal back in the summer (Fernando Felicevich official Twitter).

Despite being keen on a move, Aranguiz admitted that a deal to come to Arsenal is unrealistic at the moment.
“They’re a great team, and it would be a dream but for now that’s all it is, a dream,” (via the Express).
“I don’t know anything about it.
“I’ve heard about it through the press but nobody has talked to me.”
Aranguiz plays in a holding midfield position for his country and his link came as a surprise to many due to his similarities with many of our current players.
Given his physical stature and attributes, the Chilean is of similar ilk to Mikel Arteta, Jack Wilshere and Aaron Ramsey, which suggests that he isn’t necessarily a priority signing. According to recent reports, Morgan Schneiderlin remains top of our list for the holding midfield position… (via Evening Standard).
