Velez Sarsfield boss Ricardo Gareca has admitted they'd welcome signing Lazio striker Mauro Zarate.

Zarate is pushing to terminate his contract with Lazio.

"Velez do have an interest in Mauro returning," he told Radio La Red. "Here he is an idol to the fans.

"But I do not know if it will be easy to sign him. The deal will certainly be a complicated one.

"We should start discussing an agreement soon - or at least test the water."
