Vargas joins Gremio on loan

Eduardo Vargas has completed his expected move from Serie A side Napoli to Brazilian outfit Gremio.

The Chilean international has joined the South Americans on a loan deal after struggling at the San Paolo since his arrival 12 months ago.

Sao Paulo were hoping to net the forward until talks broke down. Gremio subsequently stepped in for the 23-year-old.

Vargas scored only three goals – a hat-trick in the Europa League – during 28 appearances for the Azzurri.
