West Ham United are ready to offload striker Mauro Zarate to Malaga, according to reports from talkSPORT.
West Ham United are expected to be very busy in the transfer market this January and while all the talk has been regarding a host of players arriving at the Boleyn Ground, many expect quite a few to be leaving as well.
Now according to reports from talkSPORT, it has been claimed that West Ham United are set to sanction their first departure of the winter by allowing striker Mauro Zarate to join Spanish side Malaga.
Zarate has made 20 appearances for West Ham so far this season and has made his contribution to the Hammers’ fine first half of the campaign.
However, with the likes of Enner Valencia and Diafra Sakho set to make a return to full fitness soon as well as the fact that Andy Carroll has returned to form, Zarate is believed to be deemed surplus to requirements by manager Slaven Bilic.
As a result, Bilic is ready to allow Zarate to leave this winter and a move to the Spanish league with Malaga has been seen as a huge possibility for the striker.
