Some of the names currently being linked with a move to White Hart Lane are beginning to suggest an air of desperation and it’s hard to believe that Mauro Zarate could possibly be the answer to our goal scoring issues.
Reports suggest that the Argentinean could be available for around £14m and while his current side Lazio aren’t desperate to sell, Zarate has apparently fallen out of favour with the coaching staff and may be prepared to move on for regular first team action.
Zarate is 24 and operates as a winger or striker and he currently averages around a goal every four games in Serie A. While it’s not out of the question that he could improve things at the Lane it seems as if every striker that could conceivably be available is now being linked with a move to Spurs.
Readers may be forgiven for hoping that the Fernando Llorente rumours that are doing the rounds are a little more accurate.
