Sao Paulo eyes former Villarreal forward Nilmar

Rio de Janeiro, May 25 (IANS) Brazil football club Sao Paulo are reportedly in talks to sign former Villarreal and Brazil international striker Nilmar.

The 28-year-old, currently playing with Al Rayyan in Qatar, hopes a return to Brazil could lead to an international recall ahead of next year’s World Cup, reports Xinhua.

Nilmar has scored 17 goals in 26 appearances for Al Rayyan since joining the club July last year.

Sao Paulo are seeking cover for veteran striker Luis Fabiano, who has struggled this year with a series of injuries.

Nilmar, who began his career with Porto Alegre club Internacional, has won 24 caps for Brazil and scored nine goals since making his international debut in 2003.
