According to several Japanese media outlets, the former Gor Mahia striker is set to sign for Kashiwa Reysol from Chinese top side Guizhou Zhicheng. Olunga has returned to China after his loan deal with Girona FC in Spain elapsed.

Enligt japanska medier skriver han inom kort ett kontrakt med Kashiwa Reysol.
However, a top agent with the player insists they are not sure which club the striker will play for next season. “We are still not sure where Olunga will play and I have not heard anything from Japan. Maybe yes…maybe no but we are still searching,” the agent told Goal on Wednesday.
Olunga cannot feature for Zhicheng as they already have the foreign quota rule filled. Apart from Japan, the towering striker has also been linked with a move to Real Sociedad, Real Betis and English champions Manchester City.
