The Guardian says Brazil boss Luis Felipe Scolari is desperate to relieve some of the goal-scoring pressure from Neymar’s shoulders but, with Fred struggling with injuries and Luis Fabiano and Alexandre Pato both disappointing since returning to their homeland, the former Chelsea head-coach is short of options up front.

One solution could be Porto’s Walter, who joined Fluminense a month ago and has already scored three times for his new club, outperforming Fred.

The 24-year-old scored a goal every other game during a loan spell at Serie A Goias last season – impressive, given his considerable weight!
