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.
