Eriksson wants Newcastle striker Ameobi at Guangzhou R&F

Newcastle United striker Shola Ameobi is a target for Chinese clubs.

The Daily Mail says former England and Manchester City coach Sven Goran Eriksson is now in charge at Chinese Super League side Guangzhou R&F and wants a British-style centre forward to help his side.

Ameobi's team-mate Papiss Cisse has also been courted by clubs from China as well as ones from Russia with their transfer windows closing in Russia at midnight on February 27 and 24 hours later on Friday February 28 in China.

Ameobi could move immediately to the Far East.
