According to media reports, Chinese Super League club Shanghai Shensua may resign Obafemi Martins as replacement for fellow Nigeria striker Odion Ighalo, who could be handed a permanent deal by Manchester United.
According to the Chinese newspaper Titan Sports, Shanghai Shenhua is set to resign Martins, 35, who featured for them between 2016 to 2018.
Martins is a free agent since he fully recovered from a long-term knee injury.
He is seen as a direct replacement for Ighalo, who has made a success of his loan spell at United and could now be sold by the Chinese club for around £15 million.
Ighalo, 30, has scored four goals in his last five matches for the Premier League outfit.
