Reds face fight for Vargas - agent

Liverpool will have to fight off stiff competition to sign Fiorentina's Juan Manuel Vargas after his agent revealed "there is a lot of interest" in the wing-back.

Vargas is reported to be high on Liverpool's summer shopping list and the Director of Football Damien Comolli is willing to spend up to €20 million to bring the player to Anfield.

The versatile Peru international can fill in at full-back or on the wing, both of which are positions that need strengthening at Liverpool.

Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Juventus have all been linked to the 27-year-old and his agent, Jorge Cyterszpiler, has confirmed there are a number of clubs chasing Vargas' signature.

"Fiorentina are a great club but there are many teams interested in Juan," Cyterszpiler told Sky Italia. "We'll see if some agreement is reached, if this does not happen, Juan will happily stay at Fiorentina. We are still waiting to see what happens."

Vargas would prefer to join Real Madrid but the prospect of regular first-team football could tempt the player to join Kenny Dalglish's side.
