Zarate set for Velez Sarsfield

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.
