Shoya Nakajima is already in Portugal as he edges closer to return to Primeira Liga
Japanese winger Shoya Nakajima has arrived in Portugal as he prepares for a return to the Primeira Liga.
Having left Portuguese side Portimonense for a huge €35million last February to join Qatari outfit Al Duhail, Nakajima is already returning to the European game, with FC Porto set to complete the signing of the tricky winger.
He is in the country to complete medical examinations - and the move could be made official by the end of the day.
The move to Asia back in February came as a surprise, and was even greeted with disappointment by many in Europe, who felt that Nakajima had a lot to offer the European game.
Porto have been making strides to sign Nakajima for a couple of weeks now, having confirmed in June that they had reached a pre-agreement with the 24-year old.
It came after Porto missed out on the signing of Bruma, who looked set to join the Primeira Liga runners-up, but opted to sign for Dutch side PSV instead.
Nakajima was heavily linked with a move to the English Premier League, with both Southampton and Wolves believed to have been considering a move for the Japanese winger, before he eventually moved to Qatar.
However, the tricky Japanese attacker, who performed so brilliantly for Portimonense during his one and a half years at the club, could return to the country this summer, with Porto actively seeking his acquisition.
Porto manager Sergio Conceicao is known to be a big admirer of the diminutive Japanese forward, and with Algerian international Yacine Brahimi leaving the club this summer after his contract expired, the door has opened for Shoya Nakajima to fill the void left behind by the long-serving Porto man.
