Grêmio strikers Marcelo Moreno and Willian José welcome Eduardo Vargas and the increased competition

Grêmio strikers Marcelo Moreno and Willian José have welcomed the arrival of Chilean forward Eduardo Vargas from Napoli and the increased competition that he will bring to the squad.

Vargas, 23, signed for Grêmio on loan this week with a view to a permanent deal after weeks of speculation and he will now have to fight with Kleber and André Lima, as well as Moreno and José, for a place in Vanderlei Luxemburgo’s team.

“Vargas is a great player, he will certainly help us,” Willian José, who signed from São Paulo last month, told Globo Esporte.

“I think his arrival will cause Vanderlei to not play with two strikers. He likes a striker with speed. We will then have a good competition.”

Vargas joined Napoli from Universidad de Chile last January but failed to adapt to life in Europe and decided to move back to South America to get his career back on track.

But for Moreno, who spent a spell on loan in England with Wigan, the most important thing is that whoever is chosen to play by the coach gives his all to the cause.

“Regardless of who plays they must give their best. Who is happy about it will be the fans, so the club wins. I'll keep working, respecting everyone. It is quiet a fight.”
