Liverpool aim to trump Juventus in £13m winger race - reports

Published Add your comment

Liverpool will make a last ditch bid for Florentina winger Juan Manuel Vargas, with the club hoping to steal the march on Juventus, according to Peru news outlet Andina.

Vargas was said to be close to agreeing a deal with Junventus worth £9 million. The Peruvian has made 80 appearances for Florentina and scored 12 goals.

But Liverpool have reportedly decided that they will up that offer to £13 million, and beat out their Italian counterparts to sign Vargas before the transfer window closes at the end of the month.


Kenny Dalglish reportedly sees Vargas as the perfect partner for Liverpool newboy Stewart Downing, and will be looking to wrap up a deal in quick succession to signing Jose Enrique.

The summer has been extremely successful for Liverpool, with the club spending well in excess of £50 million, and over £100 million since Dalglish took over the managerial post in January.

If a deal for Vargas goes through, the door will no doubt be opened to a possible deal for Aquilani to leave Liverpool and head in the opposite direction.
