Argentine outfit Velez Sarsfield have announced that they have agreed to sign Lazio outcast Mauro Zarate.
The club have stated that they agreed terms for the 26-year-old on Sunday and they are close to making the switch official.
The forward is actually a product of Velez’s youth system who left them in 2007 in favour of a switch to Al-Sadd.
The South American joined Lazio in 2008, but he’s had his problems in recent years at the Stadio Olimpico.
He was used in just one Serie A game last term following a year on loan at Inter.
