News coming from Europe is that Democratic Republic of Congo and Villareal striker Cedric Bakambu could move to China to join Beijing Guoan.

According to his coach in Spain, Javi Calleja, the move is currently finalised.


Bakambu is currently Villarreal's top scorer this season with nine goals, which makes him the joint fifth-top scorer in Spain's top flight.

“Bakambu's transfer is being finalised and it could be completed in a matter of hours," Calleja told a news conference.

"It is in the interest of all parties, there is a buy-out clause and it looks like they are going to pay it."

Meanwhile, media reports in Spain suggest that his release clause is placed at 40 million Euros (around US$40 million).

The Leopards' experienced hitman has netted 48 goals in all competitions for Villarreal since making his switch from Turkish outfit Bursaspor in 2015 for 7.5 million Euros ($9 million).
