Reports in Argentina suggest Argentian club River Plate will attempt a loan deal for fellow countryman Mauro Zarate
The reports claim there was a meeting between the club and Zarate’s representative to explore a loan deal for 6 months.
Zarate managed just 71 minutes on the pitch for relegated QPR after his January arrival on loan last season. He made just four second half substitutions for the Hoops against Burnley, Southampton, Sunderland and Hull, three of which resulted in losses. Zarate was also fined two weeks’ wages worth £80,000 for throwing a tantrum before QPR’s defeat against Liverpool.
Zarate was recently quoted saying “It is an exciting time for the club and I want to be part of that. I know the new manager had a good relationship with his players at Besiktas and I want to work hard to become a part of his plans. West Ham is still a club that I love. I have been training hard and I am looking forward to showing that I can still be an important player for them.”
