It is claimed that the club have made an offer of 18 months to the player worth $2m.

The former Chelsea midfielder has confirmed that he is speaking with the Brazilian club with a view to joining them in the summer.

“Yes, there has been an interest and yes there have been negotiations,” the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations winner told ESPN.

“But I don’t know yet. I am still thinking about it, not sure yet.”
