Cedric Bakambu is on course to join Beijing Guoan from Villarreal to become the most expensive African player of all time.

The Chinese Super League side have paid £65m for the Congolese striker, who was previously linked with a host of Premier League clubs.

The 26-year-old will earn £16m in the Far East, according to The Sun, and is on the verge of finalising his switch after completing a medical.

Bakambu has scored 48 goals in 105 matches for Villarreal since joining the Spanish outfit from Turkish club Bursaspor in 2015.

The figure Beijing Guoan are about to pay out dwarfs the previous record transfer fee for an African player, set when Liverpool spent £36.9m on Mohamed Salah last summer.
