Brazilian giants Corinthians are on the verge of signing Peruvian striker Paolo Guerrero from Hamburger SV, the German Bundesliga side have announced on their official website.
The 28-year-old was heavily linked with a summer exit from the club following another disappointing season with the Red Shorts, and Rubin Kazan were reported to be interested in his signature.
However, it has now been revealed that the player will return to South America, seeing that Brazilian giants Corinthians agreed to sign the experienced forward.
“The two clubs have agreed on a transfer,” Hamburg sporting director Frank Arnesen told club’s official website.
“For Paolo, it’s a great thing to play for this club. We of course wish him much luck and success.”
Paolo Guerrero started his European career at Bayern Munich, arriving to the club in 2002 from Alianza Lima and he needed two years to be promoted to the senior side.
Following some promising performances for the Bavarians, the Peruvian international joined Hamburger in a €2.5 million deal in July 2006.
However, he never quite managed to prove his worth at Imtech Arena and scored just 37 goals in 133 Bundesliga games for HSV.
