S.S. Lazio have made two Argentinian signings ahead of the new Serie A season with the arrival of striker Mauro Zárate and goalkeeper Juan Pablo Carrizo.

Signings
Zárate, 21, has arrived on loan with the option of a permanent transfer from Qatari side Al-Saad while Carrizo, 24, has joined from CA River Plate, with a proposed move last season having fallen through due to problems over documentation. Zárate, who spent the second half of last season in England with Birmingham City FC, passed a medical on Monday and said: "I have chosen Lazio because they are a great club and I cannot wait to start working." Carrizo added: "I am proud to wear the Lazio shirt. I want to thank all the fans because they have been waiting for me for over a year now."
