The Chelsea striker is out of contract at the end of the season and hasn’t been impressed by the club’s offer of a new one-year deal as he wants more security.
Tottenham and AC Milan have been waiting in the wings for some time but the 33-year-old could opt instead for a lucrative switch to the Far-East.
The Super League champions Evergande aren’t the only Chinese team interested in signing him, with Shanghai Shenhua also expressing a desire to reunite the Ivory Coast international with Nicolas Anelka.
Dalian Aerbin are very keen as well and have reportedly offered the player a three-year deal worth £30m or put another way, £200,000 a week.
However, Evergrande are ready to top even that by paying him in excess of the £350,000 a week that Russian outfit Anzhi Makhachkala shell out for Samuel Eto’o.
Ipswich striker Joe Garner will not play again this season after it emerged he suffered a fractured skull against Sheffield United last week.
