Guangzhou R&F and CSKA Moscow are holding talks over a transfer fee for Nigeria international Aaron Samuel, sl10.com can report.
The Russian Premier League club has officially approached their Chinese counterparts regarding the availability of the young striker in the January transfer window.
Guangzhou R&F chiefs are not willing to negotiate for any sum less than six million euros, a figure considered too high by CSKA Moscow, hence, their initial approach was rebuffed.
Just recently, Guangzhou R&F rejected a bid of €10m from Shanghai East Asia for both Aaron Samuel and Morocco international Abderrazak Hamdallah.
They are mindful of the fact that the club will be participating in next season’s Asian Champions League, and are not prepared to sell their top players, for below their asking price for that matter.
