Eduardo Vargas: Linked with loan move to Arsenal but is now set to join Sao Paulo
Sao Paulo have revealed that they expect to finalise the signing of winger Eduardo Vargas from Napoli this week.
Chile international Vargas has fallen down the pecking order at Napoli this season and has been linked with a number of clubs.
Reports had suggested that he could be heading to Arsenal on loan, but it appears Sao Paulo are now in pole position to clinch his signature.
"We'll define his signing this week," Sao Paulo president Juvenal Juvencio told Radio Bandeirantes.
"Values and intentions have been agreed. Now we have to wait, we will have him for a year and a half.
"We believe he will be an important player for us."
