Picture of the 1.71 m (5 ft 6 in) tall Chilean central midfielder of Bayer Leverkusen

Aranguiz was considered one of the best midfielders in the Chilean Primera Division, with a good sense of tactics, impressive stamina and intelligent playmaking, marking and passing abilities. He can play as a defensive, central midfielder or even as a backup right winger. He was named the MVP of the 2014 Campeonato Gaucho as Internacional won the tournament for a record 43rd time. On 11 June 2014, his purchase was announced by the club's board in a joint transaction with investor Delcir Sonda for an undisclosed fee. He was given the number 20 shirt upon his arrival to Leverkusen, the same number which he uses to this very day. Aranguiz was the subject of a fierce transfer battle between Bayer and Leicester City and despite the latter offering him a significantly higher salary, Aranguiz opted to move to Bayer Leverkeusen. The midfielder stated that Leicester was a small club, a naïve statement which he later lamented as The Foxes won the Premier League the very next season and reached the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League. He has been a mainstay for his national team. Along with Arturo Vidal, the duo have formed a formidable midfield partnership which the cornerstone for Chile’s consecutive Copa America triumphs.
