BERLIN (AP) - Wolfsburg has signed Brazilian forward Bruno Henrique from Brazilian side Goias Esporte Club.

The Volkswagen-backed Bundesliga side says the 25-year-old Henrique signed a contract on Friday through June 2019, and will wear No. 16.

Henrique scored seven goals and set up 10 more in the Brazilian league last season.

Wolfsburg managing director Klaus Allofs says “we’re happy we could reach agreement over a transfer. Following the loss of (Dutch striker) Bas Dost through injury we felt that we wanted to bolster the attack if a new signing made sense from a sporting and financial point of view. Bruno Henrique provided this opportunity.”
