Former Super Eagles captain, John Mikel Obi, could be on his way to Brazil, to join Brazilian Serie A club, Botafogo.
Mikel is reported to be at the verge of signing an 18-month deal, with the 101-year-old Brazilian club.
Botafogo have manifested a concrete interest in signing the former Chelsea midfielder who was released by his Turkish employers, Trabzonspor, last month.
Mikel left the Turkish League leaders by mutual consent, days after expressing his concerns about the Turkish Super Lig maintaining games amid the global Coronavirus pandemic.
According to reports, the 32-year-old’s search for a new club could be short lived.
ESPN journalist, Jorge Nicola, has said that Botafogo have offered Mikel an 18-month deal that would see him bag home $2 million.
If the deal materializes, the former Middlesbrough player will earn more than the $1.6 million he was paid at Trabzonspor.
In a bid to challenge for domestic and continental honours, Botafogo have been making some interesting signings. They just landed former AC Milan and Japanese international forward, Keisuke Honda.
