Orlando Pirates could be closing in on a striker from Burkina Faso, according to reports from where he plies his trade in Ghana.
The Buccaneers are believed to be keen on adding striker Yacouba Songne to their roster, as suggested by media reports in Ghana.
The 27-year-old is currently on the books of Asante Kotoko in Ghana, having joined the club in January last year.
The forward impressed with his performances this year during Kotoko’s CAF Confederation Cup campaign, and a number of clubs have been reportedly interested in his services, as a result.
Zambia club Zesco United is one of the clubs believed to have been keen on the player, while there have been reports of interest in the striker from clubs in Portugal and the Czech Republic.
“The Buccaneers inquired about the striker's availability last week and it looks like they have taken one step ahead,” Ghana website ghanasoccernet.com reports.
“Yacouba has been on the wish-list of top African sides following his exploits in the CAF Confederation Cup with the Ghanaian side. Zambia side Zesco United have also inquired about the availability of the 27-year-old. The Burkina Faso international, who joined the club in January 2018 on a free transfer, has expressed his desire to leave the Porcupine Warriors,” reported the Ghanaian website.
