Saturday’s LFC Transfer Rumours: Reds linked with Peruvian midfielder & Suarez latest

17 March 2012

Liverpool have been linked with a move for Fiorentina midfielder Juan Manuel Vargas this summer, according to reports both in Italy and England.

Vargas has been the subject of speculation linking him with the Premier League for some time and both Arsenal and Manchester Utd have been reported to have failed with bids for the 28-year-old.

The Reds could be ready to make a move for the Peruvian international to strengthen their midfield, and give Stewart Downing some competition down the team’s left side.

Vargas is renowned for his dribbling ability and has a back catalogue of spectacular goals. Vargas has played 39 times for his country, scoring 4 times.

More speculation has also linked Luis Suarez with an exit from Anfield this summer, with the Uruguayan striker now a target for Italian giants Juventus.
