Chinese Super League side Tianjin Quanjian have reportedly announced that they have a verbal agreement with a ‘world class’ striker.
The name or identity of the player has yet to be revealed by the club seem to be confident that a deal has been agreed.
Names linked recently are Diego Costa and even Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as they look for a big name signing.
Chelsea striker Costa has played a fairly big part in their title-winning season but nearly left in January.
The player subsequently fell out with Antonio Conte but did not leave the club.
Now, it is likely that he is the man that Tianjin Quanjian will be signing come the summer window.
Safe to say, a deal with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang would be groundbreaking for the Chinese Super League.
