Hapoel Be'er Sheva's Nigerian midfielder John Ogu is attracting interest from the lucrative Chinese Super League, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.
Shandong Luneng and Guangzhou R&F are two of the several teams keenly interested in snapping up the 27-year-old star who recently signed a new deal with the Camels in August, Completesportsnigeria.com also gathered.
And Ogu who is currently on a short break in Nigeria says it up to Hapoel Be'er Sheva to decide if they want him to move on.
“I just signed a new deal and that's going to be left to the club to decide if I’m no longer needed,” Ogu told Completesportsnigeria.com.
Ogu who last featured for the Super Eagles last year is also confident that the new-look team under Gernot Rohr can beat Zambia.
“We have a good team and we should be confident that we can win even if football goes beyond talk nowadays,” he added.
The Nigerian squad will travel to Ndola on Saturday ahead of Sunday’s World Cup qualifier in Zambia, according to the officials of the Nigerian Football Federation.
