Griffiths – €14m Target Better Than Barcelona’s Alexis Sanchez

By on December 14, 2011

The agent of Eduardo Vargas has claimed that his client is better than Barcelona star Alexis Sanchez due to his goalscoring record.

Vargas has been heavily linked with a move to England with Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool all linked with a January move for the highly-rated winger.

However the players representative, Mark Griffiths, has confirmed that while their is interest in his client, no official offers have been made. Vargas has been valued at around €10m, but Griffiths feels the actual fee will be nearer €12-€14m and responded to comparisons with countryman Alexis Sanchez by claiming Vargas could be considered as a better player due to his goalscoring ability:

“He’s definitely a player that is attracting a lot of interest,” Griffiths told

“Has there been an official offer from Chelsea? Their chief scout in South America is Chilean, Jorge Alvial, so it is expected that the best players from his country will be linked with the Blues.

“However, we have not received an official offer from London. Maybe they will bid in the future, but to date there is nothing. That is the same for all the European teams.”

“Valuation of €10million (£8.5m)? I think it could be higher than that, maybe around €12-14million (£10-12m),” he added.

“Vargas as the next Sanchez? Comparisons have been made, but I think in some ways he is even better than the Barcelona player because he scores more goals.”
