Jefferson Farfan nearing European return

The host of European clubs are keeping track of Peru international Jefferson Farfan, who is available on free transfer after he left Al Jazira.

Farfan has left the United Arab Emirates side to return to his native Peru after Al Jazira reportedly breached part of his contract, allowing the experienced attacked to leave as a free agent. Former PSV and Schalke man had two years in his contract, but will now be allowed to look for a new club.

Peruvian media outlet El Comercio reports that several Premier League sides have already expressed their interest in signing the 32-year-old.

French Ligue one outfit Marseille are also mulling the possibility to snap up the skilful striker, as Farfan is believed to be eyeing a return to Europe despite registered interest from Cruz Azul and Fluminense as well.

Farfan’s spell with Al Jazira had been blighted by a series of injuries, but the Peruvian player is now back to full fitness and is keen to get back in competitive action in order to make himself available for national team head coach Ricardo Gareca.
