Asante Kotoko fans have every course to be happy as the club is making strides in their targeted list of players they are looking to augment their squad with for the upcoming 2020/2021 league season and the CAF Champions League preliminary rounds.
Kotoko is rumoured to be in talks with five players including Latif Anabila (Ashanti Gold), Shafiu Mumuni (formerly of Ashanti Gold), Justice Blay (Medeama SC), Matthew Anim-Cudjoe (Young Apostles) and Joseph Esso (formerly of Hearts of Oak).
According to Kumasi-based Oyerepa FM, talks between Kotoko and Medeama resumed over the weekend as they bid time to finalise the transfer of 'midfield general' - as dabbed by the Kotoko fans, Justice Blay.
Medeama is willing to release the player when the terms are good, as well as Kotoko looking to reach a compromised fee with the Yellow and Mauves.
The report further stated that an unnamed Board Member is fronting the Blay deal on behalf of the club while CEO, Nana Yaw Amponsah, is in talks with Samuel Anim Addo, who is the agent for Mathew Anim-Cudjoe.
The Board Member's influence in the Blay's deal looks to have doubled things up, and with the way things are punning out, Kotoko is likely to announce their first signing this week under Nana Yaw Amponsah.
Both players gave a good account of themselves and went ahead to win the hearts of the vociferous supporters during their one season loan with the Porcupine Warriors during the cancelled 2019/2020 Ghana Premier League.
