Switzerland U21 international Ruben Vargas becomes the latest summer recruit for FCA, arriving from FC Luzern for the 2019/20 season. Both clubs have agreed to keep the conditions of the deal undisclosed. Last season, the 20-year-old midfielder scored eight goals and assisted eight times in 31 Swiss Super League games. Alongside three caps at U21 level, Vargas has also been called up to the Switzerland senior team, but is yet to make an appearance. Vargas, who has both Swiss and Dominican Republic citizenship, has signed a contract with the club until 2024. “In Ruben Vargas, we’ve succeeded in signing a big Swiss talent, whom other European clubs were also interested in signing,” says Sporting Director Stefan Reuter. “Ruben developed brilliantly in Lucerne and is now ready to take the next step. We’re certain that he will greatly strengthen our squad.” “Even in Switzerland, you understand that FCA is a very well-run and familiar club,” says Vargas. “That’s why I was especially pleased when I heard Augsburg were interested in me. I’m really happy that I’ll get the chance here to sink my teeth into Bundesliga football.”
