Mauro Zarate is excited about his move to West Ham United.

Having top-scored for Velez Sarsfield in the Argentine Primera Division last season, the 27-year-old is confident he will flourish in a Claret and Blue shirt.

"I have played with Lazio and Inter in Serie A and the Champions League and now I am looking forward to playing in the Premier League for a second time," he told

"I hope I will play good football and reach the highest possible level. I am very confident I am going to succeed here.

"Carlos is a fantastic player and a fantastic person. I don't think I can do the same as he did, but I hope I can become as big a favourite at this Club as he was."
