Chinese 'offer El Shaarawy €16m'

Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua have reportedly upped their contract offer for Roma winger Stephan El Shaarawy to €16m a season.

Sky Sport Italia claimed late on Monday that Shenhua had proposed El Shaarawy a €12m salary to join them.

Gazzetta dello Sport, meanwhile, put out that the offer was €8m after tax over four years.

However, the newspaper have now issued an update, claiming Shenhua have revised their proposal to €16m net, albeit over two less years.

The Italy international was the Giallorossi’s top scorer in Serie A last season with 11 goals but has only one year left on his current deal.

Talks over a renewal between the club and player also appear to have stalled.
