Cologne striker Anthony Modeste appears on the verge of a move to the Chinese Super League.

The Frenchman, who scored 25 goals in the Bundesliga last season, behind only Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Robert Lewandowski, is set to join Tianjin Quanjian for a reported 35 million euros (£30.8m).

Cologne chief executive Jorg Schmadtke told Kicker: "It is going in that direction, although it is not yet finalised."

The 29-year-old, who failed to score during an unsuccessful loan spell at Blackburn during their 2011/12 season which ended in relegation from the Premier League, joined Cologne from Hoffenheim in 2015.
