'See what happens' over €20m Spurs striker target

Lazio director Igli Tare has turned down the chance to deny speculation linking striker Mauro Zarate with a move to Tottenham Hotspur.

The Argentine has been heavily linked with a move to the Barclays Premier League this summer, with Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger also thought to be keen on the player.

However, Spurs manager Harry Redknapp is believed to be a keen admirer of the player, with the White Hart Lane outfit linked with a move for the €20 million-rated player only last week.

Football Italia reports that the arrival of Miroslav Klose and Djibril Cisse could force the 24-year-old into an un-preferred wide role at the Stadio Olimpico, and Tare gave a far from convincing response when questioned over the interest of Tottenham Hotspur and the future of the player.

“Zarate’s future? We’ll see what happens,” said the director of sport.

“He is an important player for Lazio and is putting in a lot of effort.”


Redknapp is known to be in the market for a striker this summer, with the Spurs boss eager to shuffle his attacking pack after failing to secure a return to the Champions League last season.

After failing in their pursuit of Giuseppe Rossi and Diego Forlan, Zarate is the latest name in the Tottenham Hotspur frame, although the club will need to sell before spending big on new players this month.
