Chilean who was at Grêmio last season is interested in Valencia move
Eduardo Vargas, who was on loan at Grêmio in 2013, is interested in moving to Spainish side Valencia his agent has revealed to Itasportpress.it.
Cristian Ogalde said his client wants a move to Spain and it seems likely that he’ll sign for Los Che in this January transfer window.
Ogalde said: “There have been no formal inquiries for my client.
“Valencia are tracking him and he wants to play in Spain.
“I do not know (about Catania), maybe the two clubs have spoken about it but at this time Vargas has his mind on Valencia.”
Vargas enjoyed relative success during his 12-month loan to Porte Alegre with the Chilean finding the net six times in 18 Brasileirão appearances.
He also managed to score twice in the Copa Libertadores but failed to recapture the form which made him one of the most talked about South American forwards in 2011.
The 24-year-old played a pivotal part in Universidad de Chile’s memorable 2011 where they won the Copa Sudamericana and Chilean Primera Division.
He won the best player award in the Sudamericana and Chilean Primera Division alongside finishing top scorer in the Sudamericano. Vargas was also voted 2nd best South American footballer in the same year.
Vargas will hope to find that form in Spain if, as expected, he moves to Valencia but it is a disapointment that he couldn’t discover it for Grêmio last season as they may have ran Cruzeiro closer for the title otherwise.
