Hamburg Tracking Zenit St. Petersburg Defender Fernando Meira - Report

The veteran centr- half could be on his way back to Germany
Hamburg are interested in acquiring the services of Zenit St. Petersburg defender Fernando Meira, according to a report from El Periodico de Aragon.

In addition to interest from Real Zaragoza and Ajax, the report claims that Hamburg may make a bid for the 32-year old Portuguese defender. Earlier this summer, die Rothosen signed Heiko Westermann, but the team remains thin in the central defensive position, and they could be in the market for some depth.

Meira is no stranger to the Bundesliga. The 54-times capped Portugal international played for Stuttgart from 2002 to 2008 before moving to Galatasaray, and eventually on to Zenit.
