WERDER BREMEN are set to turn to another Peruvian striker to replace departed star Claudio Pizarro.

Roberto Silva, 25, was a former team-mate of the Bayern Munich player at Alianza Lima and has emerged as the number one transfer target for Bremen.

Werder chiefs are already negotiating with the Peruvian international and his homeland club Sporting Cristal.

"I have already had preliminary talks with Silva. If we decide on him in the next few days the deal will go through quickly.

"I will sit down today with the coach and watch new video footage that I have brought along," revealed director of sport Klaus Allofs (pictured).
