Fiorentina to sell Vargas

Fiorentina are willing to let Juan Manuel Vargas leave this summer for €13m, according to reports.

A story in La Nazione suggests that the Viola are ready to cash in on the player and they will accept less than €15m for him.

The Peruvian international, who can play in a variety of positions on the left-flank, joined Fiorentina in 2008 from Catania.

The same newspaper claimed over the weekend that Juventus were back in the hunt for the 27-year-old.

The Old Lady took a close look at the South American a year ago, but the Viola's asking price of around €20m scared them off.

His valuation has dropped since then though, partly due to the club's struggles over the past 12 months and his own form.

It is being suggested that Juve could offer cash and Amauri in return for the South American.

Striker Amauri, 31, who has a year left on his Turin contract, has spent the last six months on loan at Parma.

Vargas has also been talked about as a possible target for Roberto Mancini's Manchester City.
