Liverpool are set to launch a summer transfer swoop for Fiorentina winger Juan Manuel Vargas, according to his agent.Jorge Cyterszpiler claims a number of clubs are eyeing the signature of the 28-year-old, although the Italian outfit may have to drop their £12m asking price for a deal to happen.Aston Villa have already ruled themselves out of the running as a result of Fiorentina's valuation of the Peru international, who struggled for his best form last season.Liverpool have been tracking the 28-year-old for some time after originally coming up against him in the Champions League during the 2009/2010 season.He is under contract with the Viola for another season, but he is thought to be keen on a move away from the Serie A side.
Cyterszpiler told www.tuttomercatoweb.com: "There is the possibility that he (Vargas) will leave Fiorentina.
"But at this time it's just a rumour and there is nothing official. He didn't have the best best of seasons and he needs to make up for it next season."Liverpool is an option, but there is also Malaga that has the fascination of playing in next season's Champions League. Does he have a preference with regards to playing the Premier League or the Primera Liga? Vargas likes both leagues as well as the Serie A."
