Arsenal transfer news
The 25-year-old Chilean international has never played in Europe before and looks a risky buy given his age, as he is unlikely to improve much beyond his level now.
Could this be a move to appease summer signing Alexis Sanchez – an attempt to make him feel more at home at the Emirates Stadium with a move for one of his fellow countrymen?
Either way, with Arsenal so desperately in need of real quality in midfield this summer, this seems a strange move and a worrying one if it means Arsene Wenger is back to his bargain basement approach to the transfer market once again.
