Arsenal considering surprise move for on-form Chile striker

Arsenal are considering a shock move to reinforce their attack with the addition of Napoli star Eduardo Vargas, according to reports from the Metro.

The 25-year-old struggled to perform while on loan at Queens Park Rangers last season as he saw his club drop into the Championship, but looks to have found form for Chile in the Copa America.

He scored two vital goals for his country in the 2-1 semi-final victory over Peru as they prepare to face Argentina in the final.

Is is believed that Gunners star Alexis Sanchez, who also plays for the Chile national team, is trying to persuade manager Arsene Wenger to sign the forward.

Vargas was in line to complete a permanent move to QPR, but after his side failed to ensure Premier League football for the upcoming campaign, he has now returned to Italy.

Wenger was linked with the striker ahead of his move to Loftus Road and may now reignite his interest in the player.
