Chilean Vargas joins German outfit Hoffenheim

Berlin, Aug 25 (IANS) Eduardo Jesus Vargas Rojas has moved from S.S.C Napoli to Hoffenheim, the German Bundesliga side confirmed.

The 25-year-old striker put pen to paper on a contract until 2019 to bolster Hoffenheim’s offensive after the departure of Brazilian international striker Robert Firmino, who joined Premier League outfit Liverpool during the summer transfer window.

“Eduardo’s outstanding performances during the Copa America have aroused interest at other clubs around Europe. Therefore we are pleased that he opted for Hoffenheim. He is a variable player for our offence, technically strong and resilient,” Xinhua quoted Alexander Rosen, Hoffenheim’s director of professional soccer, as saying on Monday.

Vargas played since 2012 for Napoli but never made the breakthrough into the starting team. He played on loan at Queens Park Rangers, where he scored four goals in 22 appearances.

“I’m looking forward not only to the fans, the stadiums and atmosphere in Germany but mainly to show my aggressive and offensive style play in one of the world’s top leagues,” Vargas said, who scored 22 goals in 48 caps for Chile’s national squad within four years.
