Seems Asisat Oshoala who recently won Women’s Player of the Year Glo CAF Awards 2016 is set to join John Obi Mikel’s in the Chinese Super League.
Recent reports have suggested several unnamed Chinese clubs have contacted Arsenal Ladies about doing a deal for the Super Falcons striker.
Oshoala, whose contract with the Arsenal Ladies runs out at the end of the 2017 season, is believed to be considering a move, while the English club is also reported to be willing to cash in on the reigning African women’s player of the year.
The 22-year old joined the Arsenal Ladies nine months ago from the Liverpool Ladies, but is yet to have a wholly impressive season with The Gunners.
It is now believed she will move to the Far East to join the recent cash bandwagon heading to China.
Only last week did Super Eagles skipper John Obi Mikel complete a move to China from Chelsea, with former youth international John Owoeri also set to complete a move to the Far East from Sweden.
Odion Ighalo has also been linked with a move, and recent reports suggested he is weighing his options, after initially rejecting a mouth-watering offer from a Chinese club.
Super Eagles striker Obafemi Martins currently plays in the Chinese Super League with Shanghai Shenhua.
It is not only Nigerian stars who are moving to China, as former Manchester United striker Carlos Tevez has recently joined Martins in Shanghai, where he is now the highest earning footballer in the world.
So also have former Chelsea stars, Oscar and Demba Ba.
Oshoala featured prominently as the Falcons won the Africa Women’s Cup of Nations last year in Cameroon.
