They need an attacking OP to alternate with between Gong who is more defensive. Zeng didn't have a good performance this year, not to mention injuries that kept her from playing. Any word on what Yang Fangxu is doing now?
After Asian Games 2018, Yang Fang-xu's message is still unknown until now.
It is the rumor that she will be retired due to the injury. - For example, Bian Hong-min (MB) as the former MB of Chinese men's NT didn't play any matches after 2014 World League though he announced his retirement in 2016.
It is the other rumor that she will rest a season again and again due to the injury like Season 15/16 and Season 16/17.
