LEVERKUSEN, Germany (AP) Bayer Leverkusen has lost latest signing Charles Aranguiz for months.

The Bundesliga club says the Chile midfielder has torn his left Achilles tendon in practice and requires surgery.

Aranguiz only signed for Leverkusen last week.

''He will be out for months,'' club spokesman Dirk Mesch said Friday.

Aranguiz, who was preparing for his Bundesliga debut on Saturday against Hannover, joins a group of several injured players in Leverkusen's squad, among them defenders Tin Jedvaj and Omer Toprak.
