Vargas has been left out of Napoli's squad for their upcoming Champions League qualifier, meaning that the 24-year-old wouldn't be cup-tied if he were to move to north London.

However, Arsenal will face competition for his signature from La Liga outfit Valencia - the club where Vargas spent six months on loan last season, scoring five goal in 25 appearances.
