Wolfsburg linked with Nilmar switch

The 5ft 11in Internacional hit-man has shone during his time with the Nação Vermelha, initially netting 16 league goals in 42 outings before returning in 2007, following stints at Lyon and Corinthians, and banging in a further 19 in 35 games.

As a result, the 25-year-old, who has been capped eight times by his country including at the recent Confederations Cup in South Africa, is being linked with a move away from his homeland, with Premier League champions Manchester United reportedly expressing an interest in his services earlier this summer.
