Edu Vargas close to Al-Ain

Reports in Chile claim Napoli will sell Eduardo Vargas to Al-Ain FC for €11m.

The 25-year-old scored four goals in the Copa America this summer, leading Chile to victory on home turf.

However, he has struggled at club level ever since moving from Universidad de Chile to Napoli in January 2012 for €13.5m.

He had loan spells at Gremio, Valencia and QPR, but never quite found his form.

Now Napoli are eager to get him off the books and Chilevision claim a deal is very close to being completed with UAE club Al-Ain.

The transfer fee would be €11m with Vargas getting a contract worth €3.5m net per season.
