Brazilian club Botafago are still keen on signing former Super Eagles midfielder John Mikel Obi.
According to reports, the club have offered the former Chelsea star an 18-month contract worth $2million (about R $ 10.6 million).
ESPN journalist Jorge Nicola said on his YouTube channel that Botafogo have offered Mikel higher values than what he received at his last club, Trabzonspor of Turkey.
Mikel, who is currently with his family in England, has however, asked for a little more in recent contact with officials.
The Botafogo top hats guarantee that they have come close to the limit in terms of values, but maintain optimism about the player.
Mikel already said he would no longer play in Turkey or in China, the last two countries in which he played (for Trabzonspor and Tianjin Teda respectively).
