  RIO DE JANEIRO, April 8 (Xinhua) -- Former Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel has confirmed that he is in talks with Botafogo about a possible move to the Rio de Janeiro club.

  Botafogo began sounding out the Nigerian's representatives last month after aborting a pursuit of former Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure.

  Yes there has been interest and yes there have been negotiations, Mikel told ESPN. But I don't know yet. I am still thinking about it. Not sure yet.

  Mikel, 32, is a free agent after parting ways with Turkey's Trabzonspor last month.

  Botafogo have already made one marquee signing this year, with Japanese playmaker Keisuke Honda joining on a free transfer in January.

  Brazil's major football competitions have been suspended since mid-March because of the coronavirus pandemic.
