Zarate agent confirms Inter approach

Inter are considering making Lazio an offer for Mauro Zarate, the Argentine's representative has revealed.

The No 10 could be on his way out of the Stadio Olimpico this summer after a tension filled couple of weeks at Lazio.

The club have insisted that they would consider selling him at the right price, while there seem to be problems with boss Edy Reja.

"Zarate is no ordinary player," his agent Giuseppe Bozzo told Sport Italia. "He's an important one for President Claudio Lotito and the fans.

"Mauro is very attached to the Lazio shirt and he'll remain if no side demonstrates a concrete interest in his services.

"Now Inter have manifested an interest in him and a decision will be taken with complete tranquillity.

"The Inter offer was made to me and not Lotito. It's an option that could transform into a negotiation.

"However, it is obvious that the two clubs would have to sit down and talk about it."

Inter are rumoured to be interested in a loan move for the forward, while the capital club would prefer to sell the 24-year-old.

The Biancocelesti value the South American at around €20m.
