Career[edit]

Deportivo Cali[edit]

After being loaned out to Deportivo Cali from July 2016 to July 2017, and later the 2018 season, Deportivo Cali confirmed that they had redeemed the player's purchase option and signed a contract until 2021 with the goalkeeper.[2]

Atlas[edit]

On 6 July 2019, Vargas was confirmed as a new player of Club Atlas.[3]

International career[edit]

Since the 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifiers, Vargas has been consistently called up for the Colombia national football team squad by manager José Pekerman. However, despite being named for the world cup squad, he made his debut against El Salvador at the Red Bull Arena in New Jersey on 10 October 2014, in which Colombia won the match 3-0.

In May 2018 he was named in Colombia's preliminary 35 man squad for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.[4]
