Espanyol target Napoli forward Eduardo Vargas - report

Unhappy at his lack of playing time in Italy, the Chilean may leave for Spain in a bid to find regular action, and the Catalan club are thought to be keen on a temporary switch
Napoli are currently considering loaning out Eduardo Vargas to Espanyol after the striker failed to make an impact in Serie A last season.

Vargas, who arrived in Italy following a €13.6 million move from Universidad de Chile, failed to break into the first team and has yet to score for his new club in 13 appearances.

According to La Tercera, Espanyol have expressed an interest in the forward and are confident the club's good relationship with the Partenopei will enable them to sign Vargas on loan.

Espanyol would pay €405,000 towards the deal, and would also take on a large percentage of the Chilean's annual salary.

Cristian Ogalde, Vargas' representative, is in Barcelona to meet with Ramon Planes, director of Espanyol, with both parties confident a deal can be struck.
