China's Tianjin Teda target Brazil midfielder Elias

IANS  |  Rio de Janeiro 

Sporting Lisbon midfielder Elias could be the latest international to join a Chinese Super League club, according to media reports.

Xinhua quoted Brazilian publication Uol Esporte as saying that Tianjin Teda officials have met with their Sporting counterparts in recent days and are prepared to spend eight million euros to secure the 31-year-old.

Elias has been used sparingly by Sporting coach Jorge Jesus since his three million-euro move from Corinthians in August.

Elias, who has been capped 35 times for Brazil, was linked to Tianjin Teda's Chinese rivals Hebei Fortune and Shandong Luneng earlier this year.

Other current and former internationals to join Chinese clubs in recent times include Renato Augusto (Beijing Guoan), Paulinho (Guangzhou Evergrande) and Luis Fabiano (Tianjin Quanjian).
