Vargas wants out of Italy

Napoli striker Eduardo Vargas could be set for a move away from the club because he has failed to settle in Italy, according to Calcionews24.

The Chilean has only been in the country for seven months after his arrival in the January transfer window, but a switch could be on the horizon.

Vargas is thought to have numerous offers from Spanish and English clubs, but Napoli are only willing to sanction a loan deal.

He arrived in a €12.5m transfer from Universidad de Chile in his homeland, and Napoli want to protect that investment by hoping that his market value increases with a season-long loan spent elsewhere.

The Vesuviani’s President Aurelio De Laurentiis would, however, be left with a headache in searching for a replacement.

Ezequiel Lavezzi has already been sold and if Vargas also leaves, Napoli would desperately require a new – and likely expensive – striker.

Vargas made 10 appearances last season, but failed to register a League goal.
