Wolfsburg bid for Gilardino

Reports emanating from Germany are suggesting that Wolfsburg could make a late bid for Fiorentina's Alberto Gilardino.

The Italian international is expected to be sold this summer with Serie A rivals Genoa his most likely destination.

However, just when it seemed that a Marassi move was imminent, Wolfsburg are allegedly preparing to hijack the switch.

Gila, a 2006 World Cup winner, is valued at €15m by the Stadio Artemio Franchi outfit.
