Chelsea showing interest in Arsenal target Aranguiz

Chelsea are set to do battle with Arsenal for Chilean ace Charles Aranguiz in the summer transfer window.

AS Chile reports that Jose Mourinho's Blues are also showing interest in the 25-year old Internacional midfielder who was heavily linked with the Gunners recently.

It is believed that Chelsea sent scouts to watch Aranguiz in action for Chile against Brazil in a friendly at Arsenal's Emirates Stadium on Sunday, however, any official interest in the player is not yet forthcoming according to Internacional's sporting director Carlos Pellegrini.

"Nothing formally exists with Chelsea, nor with any other club for Charles Aranguiz," he said.

"The Chilean is a fundamental player in our team and we haven't even considered the scenario of letting him leave."

It is believed that Aranguiz, who has been capped 31 times by Chile, would cost any interested clubs around £10million.
