Milan striker Luiz Adriano in China to complete Jiangsu Suning switch

The 28-year-old Brazil international has arrived in Asia to complete his move to the CSL side, just six months after arriving at San Siro

Milan striker Luiz Adriano has arrived in China to complete his move to Jiangsu Suning.

The 28-year-old Brazil international only arrived in Serie A this past summer following eight trophy-laden seasons with Shakhtar Donetsk in Ukraine.

However, he has made just nine league starts in his six months for the club, hitting just three goals. 

An €8 million arrival, Milan appear to have made a healthy profit on the deal with the 28-year-old set to complete a transfer worth a reported €14m.

He will now join a growing number of Brazilians making their fortunes in the Chinese Super League, joining fellow internationals Renato Augusto, Jadson, Robinho, Ricardo Goulart and Diego Tardelli in Asia.

The 28-year-old made his Brazil debut last year and has gone on to make four caps for the Selecao but despite the current lack of top-quality centre-forwards available to coach Dunga, is not thought to feature in the coach’s plans for the future.
