Guerrero remains keen on move

Corinthians striker Paolo Guerrero admits he is still hoping to move back to Europe before the transfer window closes next month.

Guerrero has reportedly been the subject of a loan bid from West Ham, while Sunderland are also said to be keen to land the former Bayern Munich forward.

Speaking after scoring for Corinthians on Thursday evening in their 5-2 win over GOIAS, he told Globe Esporte that he is still hopeful of returning to Europe.

"Which player doesn't want to return to Europe? They all do. But I remain focused, we have the objective of being champions, so I can't talk about anything else," he said.

He was asked about the interest of West Ham and Sunderland, and added: "I know there was interest from West Ham, I think they contacted Corinthians. I am aware of those two clubs.

"But I can't say more because I don't know the details."

Guerrero is contracted to Corinthians until 2015, who are keen to keep hold of the 30-year-old.
