Araverna, a 20-year-old Chilean attacker, has one cap for his country and currently plays at CD Universidad Catolica, impressing this season after netting three goals and three assists in 14 games.

The Dutch report also states Aravena has also attracted the interest of AZ, Sunderland and Granada following his decent form over the past campaign.

However, Les Sport, a French-language daily newspaper published in Brussels, has stated that Aravena is the subject of an "offer" from Genk, who will play in the Champions League next season after finishing second in the Belgium first division.
