Zarate surplus to requirements again

Former Hammer Mauro Zarate could be set to leave Fiorentina this summer - just six months after joining the Serie A side.

Slaven Bilic offloaded the Argentine striker during the winter transfer window having been unimpressed by Zarate's contribution during the manager's first six months at West Ham.

Since then the 29-year-old has made 17 appearances for La Viola, but crucially scoring just three goals.

And fresh reports emerging from Italy (Di Marzio) this weekend suggest that Fiorentina boss Paulo Sousa is already willing to sell the much-travelled forward in order to fund a replacement - such as Partizan youngster Nemanja Mihajlovic.

Since leaving Lazio in 2013, where he had spent the preceding five seasons, Zarate has featured for five clubs - including Queens Park Rangers, to whom he was sent on loan by Sam Allardyce in January 2015 before being sent back just two months later.

He made just 14 Premier League starts for the Hammers after joining on a free transfer in May 2014.
