Chelsea skipper John Terry will be a free agent in the summer.
The 35-year-old, who is in the last year of his contract, has already confirmed that the Blues are not interested in offering him a new contract, and he will be plying his trade somewhere else next season.
A number of Premier League clubs have been linked with the services of the experienced centre-back. Now former England manager Sven-Goran Eriksson has revealed that a number of Chinese clubs are interested in bringing the former England skipper to the Far East.
Eriksson, who currently manages Shanghai SIPG, told SunSport: “There is a lot of talk about John Terry in China. He has been one of the greatest defenders in the world for the last 15 years.
“He is still doing very well and has a lot to offer. He is one of the most recognisable players in world football. Chinese teams are looking for these big players. Great teams need great leaders. They do not come much better than John Terry. With his skill, his experience, he would be great in China, I have no doubt about that.”
However, Chelsea have mentioned that they have not made a final decision about Terry’s future at the club, and they might change their mind about offering him a new deal.
According to Sun, if Terry decides to move China, he will stand to earn £20 million per season.
