Southampton striker Graziano Pelle wants a mega-money move to the Chinese Super League in a £13million deal, according to a report.
Pelle moved to the South-coast from Feyenoord for £8million two years ago and Southampton are set to make a £5million profit on the player if his transfer goes ahead.
The offer from China is a reported £6million-year-deal from Shandong Luneng worth £125,000-a-week.
The Daily Mirror claimed that Ronald Koeman wanted a reunion with the 30-year-old striker at Everton however they have been brushed aside by the Chinese club.
The 30-year-old is in demand after scoring 14 goals last term and providing impressive performances for his home country at Euro 2016.
Pelle has one-year remaining on his Southampton contract and a move away from St Marys seems imminent as the club are set to lose another star player after the sale of Sadio Mane to Liverpool for £35 million.
He impressed during the Euro 2016 competition with goals against Belgium and Spain, however his national Italy bowed out at the quarter-final stage after a penalty defeat to Germany.
Although Pelle now his heart set on a move to China, Everton have continued their search for a new striker as they have opened talks with £14million man.
