Catania are fighting against relegation in the Italian Serie A this season and are desperate to hold onto the one huge hope that they have in Peruvian defender Juan Manuel Vargas. Although the Italian minnows have confirmed that Vargas wouldn’t be leaving the side this January, Goal.com reports that the 23-year old is up for grabs in the summer.
As usual, a host of Italian clubs is vying for the player’s signature. AC Milan are the frontrunners with both AS Roma and Fiorentina throwing their names into the hat. Yet England could be the destination that the player ultimately chooses.
His agent, Carlos Delgado says:
Our objective is to join an English club. The kid is perfectly prepared for The Premier League.
There you have it. Another trick by an agent to rack up more and higher bids for his client.
