Napoli forward Eduardo Vargas' agent has revealed the reasons why his client shunned the opportunity to join Chelsea.

Skysports.com reports how the 22-year-old Chilean international decided his future would be better served in Italy despite interest from a host of major European clubs.

Blues boss Andre Villas-Boas had identified Vargas as a player he wanted to bring to Stamford Bridge to improve his attacking options, but the former Universidad de Chile star opted to move to Serie A instead.

Vargas' representative Cristian Ogalde insists that the South American has no regrets over his decision to turn his back on Chelsea, and says that he will improve and develop in Naples.

"An agent must know what the best destination for his client is," Cristian Ogalde told Que Pasa. "The choice must not be dictated only by economic reasons or the club's coat of arms but also by the possibility to grow and show qualities.

"The interest of Chelsea? We would have been proud of his move to the Blues and we certainly would have got a higher wage, but Napoli was the best solution for everyone.

"The club were determined and showed us that they strongly believe in the potential of the boy, who can express his talent in the Azzurri shirt."
