Chairman of Chinese club Tianjin Quanjian, Shu Yuhui, has vowed to lure one of Europe’s finest strikers to China this summer.
Shu Yuhui has assured fans of Tianjin Quanjian that the club has three top European strikers on the transfer shortlist.
According to Daily Mail, the three strikers been targeted by Tianjin Quanjian are Chelsea’s Diego Costa, Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema and PSG’s Edison Cavani.
“As far as I’m concerned, our club looks certain to buy a powerful foreign striker and a quality homegrown defender,” Yuhui said as quoted on Daily Mail.
“The recruitment of the Chinese defender is a done deal but right now we cannot reveal his identity in accordance with the relevant provisions.
“As for the foreign imports, three stars have been nailed down by our club and we will choose to buy one.
“The club’s representatives are working on the deal. And I will absolutely honour my promise to the fans that the new striker will be, without a doubt, a world-class player.”
Chelsea fans will be hoping Chelsea hold onto Costa this summer as the Chinese try again for the striker.
