FC Tokyo striker Cabore will move to Qatar’s Al Arabi, the J. League first-division club said Friday.

Cabore will be the latest Brazilian player to quit Japan for a move to Qatar this year, following in the footsteps of Davi and Leandro.

Davi joined Umm Salal from Nagoya Grampus, while Leandro moved to Al Sadd from Gamba Osaka.

Cabore has been in Qatar since Monday to talk with Al Arabi and will join the club immediately, without returning to Japan.

The 29-year-old joined FC Tokyo in 2008 and scored five goals in 21 league matches this season. He has also helped the Tokyo club reach the Nabisco Cup final on Nov. 3 by scoring five goals in nine games.
