The Brazilian is out of contract and former Napoli star Careca is tipping him for a move to Naples.

"Nilmar is a star striker with great movement and fantastic quality," he told Radio Kiss Kiss Naples. "He has proven himself in Brazil for Internacional and Corinthians.

"The deal isn't done yet, but I have been speaking to his agent over the last few days and he said there is definite interest."
