The agent of Eduardo Vargas has revealed that Liverpool and Arsenal are the latest clubs interested in securing the services of the 22-year-old Chile international.
The English teams will have to fight off AC Milan and Inter in the race for the Universidad de Chile forward who is considered one of the hottest properties in South American football.
His representatives claimed over the weekend that Inter have already tabled an offer for the player.
The news came hot on the heels of speculation that Milan was also preparing a bid. Now, Vargas’ representative has claimed that some of the Premier League’s finest are also in pursuit.
"We're talking to clubs like AC Milan, Inter, Liverpool, Arsenal and others," agent Diego Cativa told Super Vasco.
Cativa was also keen to talk up his client’s talents and described Vargas as "better than Neymar".
The agent also spoke of the youngster's importance to his side, claiming: "It is as if the team has three players instead of one [when Vargas plays]."
Vargas, who has been capped nine times by his country, has been in sensational form this season for Universidad and is considered a major contender for the 2011 South American Footballer of the Year award.
