After a few close calls for relegation from the Chinese Super League, Changchun Yatai obtained striker Odion Ighalo from Premier League side Watford in February 2017. It immediately proved a good move, after Ighalo became the team's top scorer with 15 goals last season. It made sure Yatai safely survived the season with a seventh-place finish.

Tianjin Teda, Nigeria

John Obi Mikel put his 11-year Chelsea career behind him and landed at Tianjin Teda in January 2017. Until he was drafted for the World Cup squad, Tianjin Teda has been the priority for Mikel. The striker will have to quickly forget Teda's bitter loss in their last CSL game before the summer break as he heads to Russia for Nigeria's campaign.
