Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini will have to break the bank to land Internacional de Porto Alegre striker Nilmar.

The Brazilian has been a long-term target for Zamparini, who saw two offers of £8 million and £11 million rejected by Inter over the summer.

Zamparini remains determined to land Nilmar, but with Inter celebrating their centenary next year it will take a huge offer to convince them to sell one of their biggest names.
