It has been rumoured that Arsenal have been given the opportunity to sign Napoli’s out-of-favour striker Eduardo Vargas during this month’s transfer window, as boss Arsene Wenger looks to add some much needed fir-power to his squad.

The 23-year-old Chile international is surplus to requirements and has been in talks over a move to Sao Paulo in Brazil.

Vargas, once dubbed the new Alexis Sanchez, has only been in Naples for a year having moved there ahead of Chelsea from Universidad de Chile for a fee of £11.5million.

The gifted little forward has failed to make much impact over the last few months due to the brilliant Edinson Cavani, but he is still a talented lad and would add something to the Gunners set-up if they took up the chance to sign him on a short-term basis.
