Hamburg want to sign Paraguay forward Roque Santa Cruz, whose contract is up at Manchester City, the German club's new sporting director Oliver Kreuzer told Bild.
Santa Cruz, 31, spent last season on loan at Spanish side Malaga. He failed to settle at City since his £17.5 million ($27.4 million, 20.6 million-euro) move from Blackburn Rovers in 2009.
"When that kind of player is on the market you have to worry," said Kreuzer. "Santa Cruz is the kind of player we're looking for... and on top of that, he's available (for free), which is also important."
