The Argentine forward is no longer in first team plans of boss Vladimir Petkovic and he hopes to have his contract rescinded by the end of the season.
Zarate’s agent and brother confirmed few days ago that such an option was possible and that he was in talks with Lazio officials.
He, however, also said that his brother would prefer a return to Argentina, namely Velez Sarsfield, but Tottenham are still hoping to make the highly rated forward change his mind.
This is a great chance for Spurs to sign a high-quality player on a free transfer and they are eagerly awaiting future developments.
Not so long ago, Zarate was considered one of the world’s most talented forwards, but his fiery character and numerous clashes with Lazio officials prevented the Argentine from realizing his full potential.
