Former Super Eagles of Nigeria captain, John Obi Mikel, has confirmed that Brazilian football club, Botafogo, have indicated their interest in signing him on a free transfer.

Allnews reports that the ex-Chelsea midfielder also confirmed that negotiation occurred with the two-time Brazilian champions, albeit, he is "still thinking about it".

Mikel, 32, quit Trabzonspor of Turkey last month over a disagreement with the club hierarchy regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Now, an offer from South America is on the table, the African football legend confirmed.

"Yes there has been interest (from Botafogo) and yes there has been negotiations," Mikel told ESPN.

"But I don't know yet. I am still thinking about it. Not sure yet."

Mikel has spent the majority of his club career in Europe and would now look to become the first Nigerian to play for Botafogo.

Some reports claim 'The Big Fire' offered him a $2m 18-month deal.
