Liverpool Transfer Rumours: South American Linked

By on June 27, 2012

Football Talk will be keeping you up-to-date with all the latest transfer news throughout the summer. Today, Liverpool are linked with a Peruvian international.

Juan Manuel Vargas

Liverpool are interested in signing Fiorentina winger Juan Manuel Vargas, according to the players agent.

The Independent report that Vargas could leave the Viola this summer after a disappointing season in Serie A, and Liverpool have been touted as a possible destination.

The Peru international still has a year to run on his current contract having joined Fiorentina from Catania in 2008 for 12 million euros, but his four year stay could be set to end according to the players agent Jorge Cyterszpiler.

Cyterszpiler claims that Liverpool is an option for his client, while La Liga side Malaga are also said keen on landing the 28-year-old.

“There is the possibility that he (Vargas) will leave Fiorentina,”

“But at this time it’s just a rumour and there is nothing official.

“He didn’t have the best best of seasons and he needs to make up for it next season.

“Liverpool is an option, but there is also Malaga that has the fascination of playing in next season’s Champions League.

“Does he have a preference with regards to playing the Premier League or the Primera Liga? Vargas likes both leagues as well as the Serie A.”

Cyterszpiler is quoted as saying in the Independent

The versatile South American is predominantly a left winger but is also comfortable playing at left back, and made 24 league appearances for Fiorentina last season.

    He’s 28 years old – not in the prescribed age range. It’s the silly season and the press will print any old tosh. The agents are all out there spreading rumours about who is interested in signing their players. They all need the merry go round to keep spinning to keep them in Armani shoes and the like.

    On and on we go and still the delays from LFC…get Ramirez and Traore then, Liverpool need depth in the middle, on the wings and up front, so they need to act and cut the ridiculous ‘wait game’ till all good options are just gone.

    I hear Sigurdsson is on the verge of going to Spurs.
