Mauro Zarate: Lazio forward close to joining Dynamo Kiev
Lazio striker Mauro Zarate is closing in on a move to Dynamo Kiev, according to the Argentinian's agent.
Zarate has played just one league game this season after falling out with the management at the Rome club, and spent last term on loan at Inter Milan.
It now appears that Zarate will be heading to Ukraine, with Dynamo reportedly offering €8million (£6.9m) for the forward.
Reports of the move have been confirmed by the player's agent Luis Ruzzi, who told Lalaziosiamonoi.it: "We spoke with the Dynamo president about 10 days ago.
"Mauro was immediately left fascinated by their project. We are talking about a permanent transfer.
"The boy is happy, he's married to the cause and there are no other alternatives for him - it's either Lazio or Dynamo."
Zarate, who spent time on loan at Birmingham City in 2008, joined Lazio in 2008 and has five caps for Argentina.
