Benfica striker Jos on Beijing Guoan radar

Rio de Janeiro, Feb 11 : Chinese football club Beijing Guoan has made a bid to sign former Brazil striker Jos Oliveira, according to media reports.

The 32-year-old Benfica star has been tempted to accept a salary offer of $6 million a year, the Lance news outlet said on Friday, reports Xinhua.

Despite battling a persistent ankle injury, Jos 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, Jos would join fellow Brazilians Ralf and Reto Augusto in the Chinese outfit’s squad. Capped 12 times for Brazil’s tiol team, Jos has scored 76 goals in 97 matches for Benfica since his 2014 move from Valencia. IANS
