During the stoppage of football, Bayer Leverkusen is one of the clubs that are making movements in the market.
This Friday, they announced the signing of a new contract with Charles Aranguiz, this time until 2023. The athlete was being eyed by some teams in South America, such as Boca Juniors, from Argentina, and Internacional, from Brazil. However, he preferred to stay in Germany.
The Chilean is known for being one of the pillars of the Copa America twice champion. This season he played 27 games, scoring three goals and giving six assists. His average pass rate remains high, at 86%. He was speculated in many clubs, but the 31-yeard-old chose to remain in Leverkusen, where he is certainly a starter.
“We have had good conversations with Charles in the past few weeks, whose desire to stay was what we wanted. Charles is a very important player for our team. The fact that we once again opted for a long-term contract shows the total conviction that everyone involved trusts each other”, said sporting director Rudi Voller.
Apart from that, Leverkusen has shown that they are already working on the transfer market. Last week, they had already announced the signing of goalkeeper Lenhart Grill, who is considered a very promising player. He is constantly called up by the German Under National teams.
A new goalkeeper was necessary since Kaiserlaustern wasn’t in a very good moment. He played 31 matches until the stoppage and conceded 52 goals, with just 8 clean sheets.
Grill is known for his good ball output and good elasticity. He was also considered the best goalkeeper in the third division of German football.
I’m sure the fans are expecting a lot from him and also from the team. Bayer Leverkusen had some good matches until the stoppage. If they keep playing well and improve their squad, they may fight for trophies in Germany.
