Southampton star Graziano Pelle is expected to leave the Premier League club this summer, with just one year left on his contract.

The 30-year-old was linked to several clubs in Italy, but it now appears he could he heading to China.

Reports have suggested Shandong Luneng have offered the player a big money contract, and it now appears another Chinese side are interested in signing him.

According to Monday’s edition of Gazzetta dello Sport, Hebei Fortune are also interested in Pelle, and both Chinese clubs have offered the player €15m a year.

Gazzetta say talks are ongoing, and next few hours could be decisive.

Pelle could partner with former Newcastle star Pappis Cisse at Shandong Luneng or Ezequiel Lavezzi and Gervinho at Hebei Fortune.

The Italian international was impressive at the Euros, and that’s helped bring the offers in but Pelle has a difficult decision with options to return to Italy and big money on offer in China.
