​Ex-Chelsea midfielder Obi Mikel in talks with Botafogo

John Obi Mikel is in talks with Botafogo over a transfer move in the coming weeks.

The Nigerian has been out of contract since he left Trabzonspor in mid March.

Now he is hoping to find a new club amid the coronavirus outbreak.

It is not easy for Mikel, but Yahoo Sports suggests that he could be closing in on a deal with the Brazilian team.

Mikel is most famous for the decade he spent with Chelsea in the 2000s and 2010s.

He has also played for Middlesbrough in England.
