Tottenham keen on Lazio's Zarate

Tottenham will move for Lazio's Mauro Zarate in the January transfer window according to agent Jose Alberti. The 23-year old Argentine has been linked with a shift away from Lazio for some time now and it is believed that Spurs are prepared to offer around €25million for him in the next transfer window.

"Personally, I know that Tottenham would still be willing to take the player," Alberti told lalaziosiamonoi.it.

"About a month ago, I spoke with someone who is a worth a lot at the club, who assured me that Spurs had an offer of about 25 millions euros ready for Zarate."

Alberti also said that there was considerable interest from Russian club Spartak Moscow and even added Real Madrid in to the equation.

"Even Russia want him," added Alberti. "Spartak Moscow asked me about him, but Mauro would hardly accept that destination.

"If he leaves Rome, he could consider Spain and he should go immediately to Real.

"However, speaking with Mauro a few weeks ago, he told me that he came to Italy to play with Lazio. He is a fan of Lazio and has no intentions of leaving as yet."
