The Copa America is in full swing now, and – alongside our own South American representatives – there are a number of talented stars on display. We are in need of a few signings this summer if we are to have any hope of challenging for silverware next season, and there a few players at the Copa America we should be keeping our eyes on.
Here are five South American stars who would fit in well at the Emirates:
5) Charles Aranguiz

Alexis Sanchez’s Chilean teammate, Aranguiz is one of the most talented midfielders in the Brazilian league. He pulls the strings for the national side, and is the creative force that supplies our star man.
The 26-year-old also scored twice in Chile’s recent 5-0 win over Bolivia, proving that he can score goals from midfield as well.
He has been linked with a bargain £5m move to the Emirates this summer, with the midfielder claiming it would be a ‘dream move’ (via the Daily Mail).
A creative midfielder is not exactly what we need at the moment, but Aranguiz has the versatility to play in central midfield, defensive midfield, and even as a right-winger.
