China’s Beijing Guoan have made a bid to sign former Brazil international striker Jonas Goncalves Oliveira, according to reports in Brazilian media.
The 32-year-old Benfica player has been tempted to accept a salary offer of six million US dollars a year, the Lance news outlet said on Friday.
Despite battling a persistent ankle injury, Jonas has scored nine goals in 15 matches for Benfica this season, helping the club qualify for the Champions League knockout phase.
Should he accept the proposal, Jonas would join fellow Brazilians Ralf and Renato Augusto in the Chinese outfit’s squad.
Capped 12 times for Brazil’s national team, Jonas has scored 76 goals in 97 matches for Benfica since his 2014 move from Valencia. Enditem
