Watford have officially completed the signing of Fiorentina striker Mauro Zarate on a permanent basis.

The striker has been linked with the Hornets for some time, and it’s believed the English club will pay around €2.75m for his signature.

“The Hornets are delighted to announce the permanent signing of Argentine forward Mauro Zárate,” a statement on the club’s website confirmed.

“Comfortable playing as either an attacking midfielder or a striker, Zárate joins Watford in a two-and-a-half-year deal from Fiorentina, where he scored seven goals in eight starts for the Serie A outfit.

“He will wear squad number 20 for Watford.”
