'Velez considering Zarate swoop'

Velez Sarsfield boss Ricardo Gareca has revealed that the club are interested in signing Lazio striker Mauro Zarate .

The agent of the Biancocelesti forward admitted yesterday that they were looking to force a move back to the Argentine side.

And the 55-year-old Coach has conceded that it is a possibility.

“Velez do have an interest in Mauro returning,” he told Radio La Red. “Here he is an idol to the fans.

“But I do not know if it will be easy to sign him. The deal will certainly be a complicated one.

“We should start discussing an agreement soon – or at least test the water.”

Zarate started his career at the club, scoring 17 goals in 40 appearances between 2004 and 2007.
