Chinese club Shanghai SIPG are looking to sell Ghana striker Asamoah Gyan at the first available opportunity, and replace him with Zenit st, Petersburg forward, Hulk
The Black Stars striker joined the Shanghai side from Abu Dhabi team Al Ain mid-2015 and his reported weekly salary of £227,000 makes him one of the highest paid players in the world.
However, the 30-year-old has been hit by a series of injuries and the Chinese Super League side now feel that they would be better served by having the player off their roster.
Gyan has managed just six appearances (three of them as a substitute) for Shanghai in their 11 CSL matches in the 2016 season, notching just two goals in the process.
Selling Gyan would both lessen the club’s wage bill and free up another non-AFC Federation berth in their squad, thus allowing them to sign another foreign star.
The Chinese side have reportedly lined up Brazilian Hulk as Gyan’s potential replacement.
