Guerrero set for Corinthians
Corinthians are close to finalising the transfer of Peru striker Paulo Guerrero from Hamburg, for a fee thought to be in the region of €5 million.
Guerrero, 28, moved to Germany in 2002, spending four fears with Bayern Munich before making the switch to Hamburg.
"Both teams have agreed on the transfer," Hamburg sporting director Frank Arnesen told reporters. "It is a big thing for Paolo to play for such a club and we wish him all the best."
Guerrero is believed to have arrived in Brazil for his medical examinations and could be unveiled as a Timão as early as Thursday, if reports are to be believed.
The Peru international was top-scorer at the 2011 Copa America, adding to ain impressive career scoring record of 102 goals in 272 games.
