There are some more interesting Arsenal rumours emerging that the Gunners are close to sealing a one year loan deal for the Chilean international Eduardo Vargas from Napoli. Vargas and our very own Alexis Sanchez made an impressive pairing at the World Cup, and perhaps Wenger thinks they could perform just as well for Arsenal.
Vargas’ agent Cristian Ogalde admitted that he is likely to be on his way out on loan again, after spending last season with Valencia. Ogalde was quoted as saying to the Chilean newspaper Emol: “Edu is working well and will fight as long as he possibly can to earn a place in the Napoli shirt,”
“He has a very good rapport with Benítez. We are also evaluating a possible loan move and I have received many offers.
“We knew his return to Napoli would be very difficult, as they have other priorities.”
That quote from his agent is a bit vague, but now it is being reported in Chile that Vargas has already told his family that he will be moving to the Emirates imminently. Will his arrival be enough to convince Arsenal fans that Wenger is extremely serious about winning the League this season?
