thumbnail Hello,

Wolfsburg striker Grafite could be on his way back to Brazil as Palmeiras are after the attacker.

According to a report in Correio do Estado, Brazilian outfit Palmeiras are closely monitoring the situation of experienced striker Grafite, currently under contract with beleaguered Bundesliga side Wolfsburg.

The 31-year-old Grafite joined Wolfsburg from Le Mans in 2007-08 and quickly became an important first team member at the Woelfe. He played a key role in his side's Bundesliga title in 2009 with 28 goals in 25 appearances.

However, Grafite has since been unable to reproduce that form and the Brazil international is no longer an undisputed starter at the struggling German outfit.

Therefore, he could decide to move on at the end of the season and Palmeiras are supposedly keen to lure him away from his current club. Grafite's current contract with Wolfsburg runs until the summer of 2012.

The experienced attacker currently sits 170th in the Castrol Rankings following his performances in the past 12 months.
