Napoli are set to acquire another talented South American forward on their squad this winter as Chilean, Eduardo Vargas, will join the likes of Ezequiel Lavezzi, Edinson Cavani and also Mario Santana as part of the clubs attacking players.
The confirmation about the young striker’s arrival was confirmed by Vargas himself, who revealed to the media that he will be joining the Partenopei starting from this January.
Vargas, who played for Universidad de Chile revealed his excitement about his future at Napoli stating that he can’t wait to play with his new team. The youngster also claimed that despite several other interest from the likes of Chelsea and Inter Milan, Napoli is his main option without a doubt as he is now simply preparing to join his teammates for the winter preparation, since there’s a short break in Serie A ahead of Christmas.
“I can’t wait. I will complete the transfer to Napoli in the first days of January. I am happy to come to Italy, as they play a spectacular style of football there. I never thought of going anywhere else. I am happy and at the same time impatient to join Napoli,” Vargas stated.
The deal that see Vargas arriving from Chile was revealed last weekend where reports from Italy suggested that Universidad agreed a 12 million Euro fee to release their prize asset this January. The youngster is being dubbed as one of the few exciting talents in South American at the moment and with many admirers, apparently the Partenopei management didn’t take much consideration in immediately making serious bid to acquire the striker’s signature.
Vargas could actually make an instant debut with Napoli in the league this January since the San Paolo outfit will be without Lavezzi for around a month after the Argentinian picked up an injury last week. Should the young Chilean managed to impress Walter Mazzarri, the tactician would definitely give the striker an immediate chance, despite still having to compete with the likes of Goran Pandev, Giuseppe Mascara or Santana.
