There's a mad scramble for Internacional de Porto Alegre star Nilmar.

The Brazil international, formerly of Lyon, is a confirmed target for Palermo and his agent, Orlanda da Hora, has revealed there's growing interest in the forward.

"Real Zaragoza and Palermo have already tried to put him under contract," said Da Hora. "But for this, we are in January and other clubs have talked to him, like Real Madrid and Roma."
