Lazio striker Mauro Zarate is eager to move to Arsenal. Corriere dello Sport says the Argentine's brother and agent, Sergio Zarate, was in London yesterday for talks with the Gunners. Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp may also be keen as he seeks a striker signing.

Zarate has an offer from Spartak Moscow, but has no interest in moving to Russia.

The striker has previous experience in England with Birmingham City and knows Lazio president Claudio Lotito is prepared to listen to offers for him this month.
