Chinese interest in Elkeson
Botafogo playmaker Elkeson is the subject of interest from China, according to his agent Antônio Gustavo.
Elkeson, 23, has been an important payer for the Alvinegro this season, often showing his versatility to fill-in as a central-striker when required.
Now, though, having seen a €4.5 mullion offer from Bologna rejected in the summer, the exciting forward is once more the subject of intense speculation.
"Since the middle of the year we have received offers," Gustavo told Lance! "Recently we have had some interest and one was from a club in China. I asked Elkeson if he would like to play there."
The agent went on to confirm that the player had interest in a possible move and that he had informed the club of the values required to sign the player.
The ball is now in the court of the Far Eastern side, if they wish to bring the 1-cap Brazil international to China after a season in which he has reached double figures for league goals in Série A.
