At last, a goalscorer appears to be set to sign for the club.
Mauro Zarate who scored 19 goals in 29 appearances for Valez Sarsfield last season has agreed to join West Ham according to his agent and brother. ”We have almost everything sorted out with West Ham, they asked him not to play against San Lorenzo but he wanted to play.
“Mauro Zarate and his family’s love for Velez is huge, but the club receive a good financial compensation.”
The Argentine international had a previous spell on loan at Birmingham City in 2008 where he impressed, but he opted to join Lazio following the clubs relegation.
