Genoa close in on Vargas
Genoa are reportedly leading the race to sign Fiorentina midfielder Juan Manuel Vargas, despite interest from Liverpool.
La Viola are ready to cash in on the Peruvian and Vargas did not feature in their 2-1 win over Udinese on Saturday.
Premier League side Liverpool have been credited with an interest but reports in La Gazzetta dello Sport suggest Serie A outfit Genoa are poised to seal a deal before the transfer window closes on Friday.
Genoa boss Luigi De Canio hopes to sign Vargas on a season-long loan-deal with an option for a permanent transfer at the end of the current campaign.
