RIO DE JANERIO: Brazil international midfielder Lucas Lima has confirmed he has received offers to join several Chinese football clubs next year.

According to the Uol news portal, the 25-year-old Santos playmaker is being sought by Jiangsu Sainty, Shanghai SIPG of the China Super League (CSL) and China's league one club Hebei China Fortune, reports Xinhua.

Santos are understood to have placed an $18 million price tag on Lima, who has also been linked to Italian outfit Napoli.

"What I have most analysed are the options in China," he was quoted as saying. "I sat down with my father and there is the question of money, as all people know, but it's still not what I'm interested in. I'm going to analyse it more what is best for me.

"I have a contract and I have made it clear that I want to play in Europe, but only if it is good for me and good for Santos. We've had some proposals and I will sit down with my family to think about them."

Lima has been capped six times for Brazil after making his debut in the Selecao's 1-0 win over Costa Rica in September.
