Sunderland have made ‘enquiries’ over ‘magnificent’ 11-goal gem ahead of January

Sunderland appears to be ratcheting up its chase of a prospective Jack Clarke replacement, Chilean Alexander Aravena.

Because of his blistering start to the season, Jack Clarke has been linked with a move to the Premier League on numerous occasions.

Sunderland are expected to look for a replacement, but if recent claims are correct, they already know who they want.

Sunderland have been linked with a move for 21-year-old Alexander Aravena, according to Globo Esporte.

Sunderland were reportedly interested in him throughout the summer, and with his contract expiring in December, he may be an ideal free addition for January.

With top-flight clubs showing an increased interest in Clarke, Sunderland may have found the ideal substitute.

So, with Sunderland’s interest established, who is he?

Aravena, who is only 21 years old, is already a Chile international. He has three caps and usually plays alongside the renowned combo Alexis Sanchez and Arturo Vidal.

The’magnificent’ teenager has really bloomed into a top player for his current team, Universidad Católica, this season.

He has 11 goals and four assists in 25 games this season in Chile’s Primera División, as well as one assist in one Sudamericana game.

A big threat down the left with a similar output to Clarke, he would almost certainly require some adjustment, so signing him in January to replace a potential Clarke departure next summer is a wise decision.

Aravena, a player with a low center of gravity and who already appears to have first-rate decision-making on the ball, could be a fantastic steal for any club interested in him; hopefully, Sunderland will make a move.

Sunderland face competition

Aravena, on the other hand, has a slew of clubs interested in him as a result of his breakout performances in Chile, which have really put him on the map. Sunderland are correct to leave their options open due to the strong degree of interest.

AZ Alkmaar, Club Brugge, and Granada all rumored to be interested in signing the 21-year-old.

Meanwhile, Club Athletico Paranaense of Brazil is competing in South America to sign the promising winger.

Sunderland won a huge battle, culminating in yet another hot prospect joining the club.
