Mikel Obi in talks with Brazilian club after been laid off at Trabzonspor
John Mikel Obi is in negotiations with Botafogo over a move.
The Brazilian club has made an offer to the former Super Eagles midfielder, who is now a free agent.
Mikel Obi’s contract with Trabzonspor was terminated in March, when he refused to play amid the coronavirus outbreak.
The 32-year-old refused to delete an Instagram post criticizing Turkish football authorities, before his deal was cancelled.
It appears Botafogo now sees Mikel Obi as an alternative to Yaya Toure, after failing to sign the Ivorian earlier this year.
