FC Tokyo is on the verge of signing former Nigeria international striker and last season’s J. League first-division joint-top scorer Peter Utaka, a source close to the move said Monday.

The 33-year-old Utaka, who bagged 19 goals for Sanfrecce Hiroshima in 2016 to share the Golden Boot with Vissel Kobe’s Brazilian forward Leandro, is set to undergo a medical and barring any problems could sign for the Gasmen in the coming days.
