Liverpool are hoping to pull off something of a transfer coup by attempting to lure Villarreal striker Nilmar to Anfield in January. Roy Hodgson has earmarked the Brazilian international as one of a handful of striking talents he would like to sign when the transfer window reopens.
The 26 year old former Lyon man has been a huge hit in La Liga and has helped his over achieving Castellon side to second place with his fine performances and prolific goalscoring return. Nilmar is currently top scorer in Spain having scored five goals in six matches and has been a regular in the national team set up.
The talented attacker is thought to be looking for a big move that would help him cement a regular spot in the Brazilian starting eleven and may believe that he has gone as far as he can at Villarreal. A number of other sides are known to be interested in signing the striker with the likes of Chelsea and Juventus both being linked with potential moves.
Hodgson is hoping he will have significant funds to spend now that it appears that the club will be taken over by New England Sporting Ventures and it would take a bid in the region of £14m to land the in form Brazilian.
