Zarate set for QPR medical as Palace join chase

Mauro+Zarate+Sydney+FC+v+West+Ham+United+Football+SwzG_p3t_ehlMauro Zarate looks Queens Park Rangers-bound this week after he was booked in for a second medical at the club this morning.

Despite Harry Redknapp claiming over the weekend he wasn’t close to completing any deals, ClaretandHugh has just received confirmation the medical is to go ahead.

New Palace boss Alan Pardew made his interest known to West Ham over the weekend having been keen to take him to former club Newcastle before moving in as the new Selhurst Park boss.

But with talks well advanced with QPR it now looks likely that the Argentinian striker will join Redknapp’s outfit which were knocked out of the FA Cup by Sheffield United yesterday.

Our source said: “Zarate is having ┬ámedical at QPR today but it’s true that Palace came in on over the weekend'”
