Hamburg swoop for Man City striker Santa Cruz

Hamburg are swooping for Manchester City striker Roque Santa Cruz.

The Sun says Santa Cruz is a target for Hamburg after his release by City.

The Paraguayan striker cost £17.5m from Blackburn in 2009 but spent last season on loan at Malaga.

Before joining Rovers Santa Cruz, 31, was at Bayern Munich for eight years.

A Hamburg spokesman said: “He fits squarely into our requirements.”
