Reports in Italy suggest Liverpool have contacted Fiorentina over Peru international Juan Manuel Vargas.

La Viola’s star has been the subject of interest from a number of sides this summer, but the Serie A club wish to hold on to the left sided player.

But Liverpool are the latest club to eye the 28-year-old and according to Sportmediaset, have contacted Fiorentina to make it clear they would be interested in Vargas.

Whether Fiorentina entertained Liverpool’s approach is unclear, but the Peru star would undoubtedly be keen on a switch to Anfield.

Vargas joined Fiorentina in 2008 from fellow Italian side Catania for €12M after being chased by Real Madrid.

Known as "El Loco", Vargas clocked up 24 appearances in Serie A last season, scoring four goals in the process.
