Fiorentina are unlikely to sell Liverpool and Aston Villa target Juan Manuel Vargas this summer after both clubs failed to reach the Italian club's £12m asking price.
The Premier League duo, along with Bundesliga side Bayern Munich, are thought to have registered their interest in the Peru international, who has been at Fiorentina since 2008.
Vargas, who operates at left-back and left-midfield, has been linked with a switch to Liverpool since impressing against the Reds during two Champions League clashes in the 2009/10 season.
The Anfield side had been given encouragement to bid for the Peruvian's services this summer, but it appears that no offer has been made.
And now Italian newspaper La Nazionale claim that Fiorentina will look to keep hold of Vargas and utilise his services next season.
