Striker Grafite will meet with Wolfsburg boss Felix Magath this week before deciding on whether to make a move to the United Arab Emirates. The 32-year-old Brazil international, who was the top scorer in Hamburg's 2009 Bundesliga title success, is considering a reported two-year deal to join Dubai-based club Al Ahli.
The striker's agent Pascal Carbon revealed a deal was likely to happen, however, a last round of meetings with Magath will take place before a final decision is made.
"We are planning to have one more chat with Felix Magath, afterwards we are going to make a decision on the future," Carbon told Sport 360. "I think the transfer will be going through in the new week."
Grafite scored 28 goals and was named German Footballer of the Year when Die Wolfe won the 2009 Bundesliga title.
Last season Grafite, who has been capped four times by Brazil, managed just nine goals as Wolfsburg narrowly avoided relegation.
