Paris Saint-Germain forward Ezequiel Lavezzi has become the latest player to agree a move to Chinese football.
Hebei China Fortune have claimed the Argentine forward has agreed a two-year deal to play at the Qinhuangdao Olympic Sports Center Stadium.
Lavezzi is the latest in a line of European-based players to switch to the Chinese game and it has been previously reported he will earn £23.5m during his stay there.
Hebei have already recruited two former Premier League players in this transfer window in former Arsenal forward Gervinho and ex-Chelsea winger Gael Kakuta.
Stamford Bridge old-boy Ramires, Jackson Martinez, Alex Teixeira - who had been a target for Liverpool - and Fredy Guarin have also moved to China.
Lavezzi has been with PSG for the last three-and-a-half seasons following a £23m move from Napoli in the summer of 2012.
Although he is now 30, Hebei have described the 48-cap striker as "the next Maradona" on social media ahead of the first round of Super League fixtures on March 4.
