Brazilian forward Hulk has undergone physical examination in China ahead of joining Chinese club Shanghai SIPG.
The move to play in Chinese Super League for Hulk is a record 55 million Euros from Zenit St Petersburg breaking the Asia transfer record of £38million that Jiangsu Suning paid Shakhtar Donetsk for Brazilian midfielder Alex Teixeira in February.
Hulk, the 29-year-old who has won 46 caps for Brazil and scored 11 international goals, joined Zenit from Porto in 2012.
He netted 56 goals for Zenit in 97 Russian Premier League matches and was the league’s top scorer in the 2014-15 season with 15 goals.
Zenit finished third last season and missed out on qualification for the Champions League. They will play in next season’s Europa League.
Shanghai SIPG are coached by the former England manager Sven Goran Eriksson.
