Two Chinese Super League teams interested in Robson-Kanu

Welsh winger Hal Robson-Kanu is believed to be on the radar of two Chinese Super League (CSL) teams and a club based in Abu Dhabi. 

Beijing Guoan and Jiangsu Sunning are thought to be willing to fork out £5 million per year to acquire the services of the 27-year-old, who is currently a free agent after he left Reading this summer. Al Jazira, meanwhile, have also expressed their interest in Robson-Kanu, who scored twice at Euro 2016, including in Wales’ 3-1 win over Belgium in the quarter-finals. 

Despite receiving a number of tempting offers, Robson-Kanu is eager to ply his trade in the Premier League and his representatives will reportedly hold talks with Watford, Hull and Swansea City next week. 

On Monday, Hull manager Steve Bruce claimed that the club have been in contact with Robson-Kanu’s father and brother and are willing to sign him. 

“He's had a wonderful tournament but you don't buy somebody on the back of a tournament,” Bruce told Sky Sports. “We've known for years now what a good player he is and he seems to have burst into life going down the middle.”

Should Robson-Kanu decide to head to China, he will join former Newcastle striker Papiss Cisse and Southampton forward Graziano Pelle in moving to the Chinese Super League during the current transfer window.
