News today that Newcastle United are about to join the race for left-sided Peru star Juan Manuel Vargas, who currently plays for Catania in the Italian Serie A league.
Juan Vargas – 24 year old Peruvian International
The 24-year-old is said to be also interesting both Inter Milan and Fiorentina, as well as clubs in Spain, with a move away from Sicily almost certain to take place in the summer.
Vargas’ versatility – he can play full-back or in midfield – will be an appealing factor to Kevin Keegan. But again we may not be too well placed for the player, since we can offer no European Football next year.
The Lima-born Juan has played 65 times for Catania and scored 7 goals since 2006, and has so far played 15 times for Peru scoring 2 goals.
If he’s anything like another Peruvian we know about he’ll do just great and no doubt Kevin will be calling Nobby Solano, to get hisviews on the player.
Vargas is valued at around Â£6M by his club.
