Portsmouth make late bid to trump Lazio for Zarate

Portsmouth have made a late bid to wreck Lazio's deal for Argentine striker Mauro Zarate.

Rome sources say Pompey have been in contact with Zarate's Qatari club Al Sadd in a last ditch bid to trump Lazio and bring the striker back to England.

Lazio officials remain calm, however, insisting that their agreement with Al Sadd is secure.
