Liverpool warned in chase for Zarate signature
Tuesday 21 April 2009
Liverpool can abandon hope of buying Argentine forward Mauro Zarate because Lazio are determined to keep their loan signing from Qatar's Al-Sadd, the Serie A club's president said today.
"There is zero chance. Lazio will exercise their option to buy Zarate and they will not sell Zarate to Liverpool, full stop," Claudio Lotito told Reuters.
Media reports have said Liverpool are interested in the former Birmingham City striker, who has scored 12 league goals for the Rome club this season.
