Toronto FC and USMNT star striker Jozy Altidore could soon be heading to China. According to Steven Goff of Washington Post, Chinese Super League side Jiangsu Suning is interested in acquiring Altidore and reportedly has made a $10 million bid for the 29-year-old.

If the deal goes through, Goff reports that Altidore would get a $25 million cotract for three years. For comparison, now he is earning $6.3 million annually according to the contract he signed with Toronto back in February.

Altidore is currently away on international duty, playing with USMNT at CONCACAF Gold Cup. He played two games on the tournament and managed to score one goal.

Jozy Altidore has spent the previous five years with Toronto, during which he played 134 games in MLS and managed to score 65 goals. This also includes five goals he scored in nine matches he played in 2019.

Before he signed a contract extension with Toronto, Altidore was rumored to be interested in return to Europe. Toronto eventually came with a big offer after losing Sebastian Giovinco, and Altidore agreed to a new deal that runs through 2022.
