Mauro Zarate is determined to score in the Rome derby for new club Lazio.

The Argentine striker revealed: "The aim of every player is to fight for the Scudetto, although it will be difficult. The fans of Lazio? They've asked me to score a goal against Roma, one of them told me that he would get a tattoo to mark the success if I managed to do so.

"I haven't spoken to (coach) Delio Rossi yet. I know we have many great strikers and I need to work hard to find a place in the team.

"I'm similar to Rodrigo Palacio (Boca Juniors). I know Lazio were also interested in him and I'm grateful they chose me."
