Peruvian striker Claudio Pizarro, out of contract with Werder Bremen, is poised to sign a one year contract with former club Bayern Munich, it was reported on Thursday.

Pizarro, 33, has already passed a medical and all that is missing for the deal to go through is for him to put pen to paper when he returns from holiday in Peru, German daily Bild announced quoting Bayern’s sporting director, Christian Nerlinger.

The Peru international, who played for Bremen between 1999 and 2001 before returning to the club in 2008 following spells at Bayern Munich and Chelsea, finished the 2011/12 campaign as the club’s top scorer with 18 goals.

He enjoyed a successful spell at Bayern between 2001 and 2007, helping the Champions League beaten finalists to the Cup and League double in 2003, 2005 and 2006.

Pizarro holds the Bundesliga record for most goals by a foreign player, having found the net 160 times in 333 matches.
