thumbnail Hello,

The clubless striker is desperate to get back into action...

Former Inter striker Christian Vieri is looking to play in Africa after failing to find himself a club in Brazil, according to La Gazzetta Dello Sport.

The Italian is understood to be thinking about an offer from South African side Moroka Swallows. The Johannesburg-based club is owned by Volkswagen and they are reportedly keen on him. Vieri wants to play regular football in an attempt to get himself into contention for the 2010 World Cup.

'Bobo' was linked with moves to Brazilian sides Santos and Corinthians, but voices suggest both clubs had doubts over the player's fitness and form as he has been in and out of action in recent times.

The hitman rescinded his contract with Atalanta in April and he has been out of action since. The search for a new club continues. Vieri is available on a free transfer but the Swallows would have to meet his wage demands to land him.
