MANAGER Sam Allardyce’s attacking revolution at West Ham is set to begin today, with former Lazio and Inter Milan forward Mauro Zarate expected at Upton Park to pen a three-year deal.
Allardyce, unpopular with Hammers fans, has been given a stay of execution by the club’s board, but told to play more attractive football and achieve a top-10 finish in the Premier League next season.
Zarate, 27, was top scorer in Argentina last season helping Velez Sarsfield finish sixth in the Primera Division.
He said: “It’s a new chance for me. West Ham called me. They are a fierce team and now I think I want to play there.”
