Deal Agreed: Leicester City agree club record fee for 26-year-old midfielder

aranguizIt hasn’t been the easiest of summers for the Leicester City fans in the Football Transfer Tavern, with many Foxes supporters still underwhelmed by the appointment of new boss Claudio Ranieri.

But Sky Sports has some news that may get Foxes fans excited for the big kick off next week, with reports claiming the club have agreed a record deal to sign Chile international Charles Aranguiz from Internacional.

The fee is understood to be a record £10.5million, and is an indication that new boss Ranieri will be backed between now and the end of the transfer window.

26-year-old Aranguiz recently played a key role in his Chile’s success at the Copa America. The midfielder has a total of 40 caps for his country, and six international goals to his name.

He would be seen as a direct replacement for another South American midfielder, after Estaben Cambiasso confirmed his departure from the King Power Stadium last month.

A number of Foxes fans over by the fruit machine here in the Transfer Tavern feel that this signing will help enhance the quality of the squad, and ultimately help the club steer clear of the dreaded relegation zone.

Leicester fans…. What do you make of this news? Would Aranguiz be a good signing? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
