Peruvian striker Paolo Guerrero has been alerted to interest from a number of Premier League clubs and is considering a move back to Europe, Goal can reveal.

Sunderland, West Ham and QPR are all understood to be monitoring the former Bayern Munich man's situation, and he is keen to have one more crack at European football.

A source close to the Corinthians striker told Goal: "Paolo is aware of interest from England and is keen to pursue it."

However, Timao sporting director Ronaldo Ximenes insisted to Goal that the player is happy: "Corinthians haven't received any offers. We have just signed new contracts with Gil, Petros and Cqssio. The next ones on our list are Fabio Santos and Guerrero. We won't let any of our best players leave the club that easily."

Guerrero joined Bayern from Allianza Lima in 2003 and enjoyed nine-year spell in the Bundesliga, scoring 47 league goals with the Bavarians and Hamburg.

The 30-year-old moved back to South America with Brazilian giants Corinthians in 2012 and he has continued his good form with 32 goals in 90 games in all competitions.

Corinthians are currently second in Serie A after 12 matches, five points behind leaders Cruzeiro.

Guerrero enjoyed the league's break for the World Cup by attending the Argentina v Netherlands semi-final and the final in Rio de Janeiro.
