His agent, Fernando Felicevich should be familiar to us, seeing as he is the man who brought Alexis Sanchez to the club after meeting Arsene Wenger in Brazil.
Aranguiz is a strange case, his description as a player gives the impression that he is a similar to Mikel Arteta, a short aggressive player who is also decent on the ball.

Given the contractual situation of our central midfielders, that maybe the area we see addressed the most this summer with the captain, Abou Diaby and Mathieu Flamini facing uncertain future.
Should all three depart, the reports surrounding a move for Morgan Schneiderlin may also be true when you take into account the amount of injuries we suffer in that position.
Arsene Wenger has said that there is “no movement” (via the Mirror) on Arteta’s contract with his current injury issues not ideal for a player seeking an extension at the age of 34.
