Kumasi Asante central defender, Ismail Abdul Ganiu is courting interest from clubs globally following his sterling performance with the Black Stars.

The 24-year-old made his Black Stars debut against South Africa in Ghana’s penultimate 2021 AFCON qualifier at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg in a 1-1 draw.

The intelligent defender was on hand in Ghana’s final qualifier against São Tomé at the Accra Sports Stadium where Ghana won 3-1 to cement a 9th AFCON place in Cameroon next year.

His bright performance generated debate over whether or not he should be selected for the next AFCON.

This debate has caught the eye of Saudi Arabia club, Al Ahli Jeddah who have tabled a bid for the former Karela United defender.

According to football journalist Nuhu Adams, the Jeddah based club have tabled a whopping amount of $850,000 for Ganiu.

Ganiu has been instrumental in Kotoko’s 2020/21 Ghana Premier League season.

Kotoko lie 4th on the league table with 27 points after the first round.

The Porcupine Warriors have an outstanding game to clear against Bechem United.

Their next opponent for the return of the second round of the Ghana Premier League will be Techiman Eleven Wonders at the Ohene Ameyaw Park.
