Lazio Closing In On ‘New Zarate’ Gonzalo Barreto

Gonzalo Barreto According to the latest reports from Corriere dello Sport, Lazio patron Claudio Lotito is looking to seal a move for the player being called the ‘New Zarate’ before the close of the transfer market on Monday.

Gonzalo Barreto has long been admired at Formello, and it seems the Aquilotti are keen to complete a swoop for Danubio’s 17-year-old talent as interest from a number of clubs begins to grow.

Despite his young age, the Uruguayan is already considered a hot prospect for the future. Given his age, however, he will not be able to feature in Serie A until 22 January 2010, when he turns 18.

Considering the Biancazzurri’s obvious need for reinforcements in their rearguard, it has come as quite a surprise that the fiery Lazio patron is spending the final days of the transfer market looking for further additions to the forward line. But, maybe, Barreto is one talent too special to resist.
