Premier League

Our deal makes enough sense than just signing the player for Hearts of Oak

The continental club masters looks favorite to get the player with the whooping amount they are splashing ou on the player. But Kotoko is riding on their home advantage. Let the truth be told, with the performance of the players from Division One to the Premier League, he will wish to move higher by signing for a potential African Champion League winners Hearts of Oak. Hearts of Oak and Dreams FC are the only two clubs to have approached King Faisal for the services of their striker Kwame Peprah, Alhaji Grunsah has confirmed. Reports are rife in the media that Asante Kotoko are leading the race to sign Peprah from King Faisal after the departure of Kwame Poku. Kwame Poku has left the Porcupine Warriors to join Algerian side USM Algers in a bumper deal. Alhaji Gunsah, owner of King Faisal has debunked reports in the local media that Asante Kotoko have made an offer for their player. Peprah has been a revelation in the ongoing Ghana Premier League scoring 9 league goals in 17 outings for King Faisal. “Hearts and Dreams FC officially wrote to us requesting for negotiations to open for Kwame Peprah. But, for Kotoko, there has been nothing officials from them," Grusah told Accra Peace FM.

"As a result, we have discussed our expectations regarding the transfer of the player. Very soon we will announce where Peprah would be playing next season,” he added. Kwame Peprah as the ideal fit and has today started the process to open talks with King Faisal over the availability of the forward. Already, Hearts of Oak and Dreams FC have contacted King Faisal about their interest in the striker. With Asante Kotoko joining the race, the club is expected to engage in a tug of bids with their sworn rivals Hearts of Oak. Meanwhile, reports have it that there is an interest from a club outside of Ghana that could succeed in outbidding the two Premier League giants to sign Kwame Peprah.

Hearts of Oak will be facing huge challenge from bitterest rivals Asante Kotoko alongside Legon Cities FC and Dreams FC who have all shown interest in Peprah.

Looking at the interest of the deal the boy is just waiting on the lucrative one that looks good in terms of money. But they should rather think of the development of the player to see his chances ahead of him. They can make an unending income on him whether they make instant cash or progressive cash in on him with better options in his deal. Kwame Peprah has currently bagged 8 goals in 14 games, providing 4 assists and has also won the MVP award on three occasions. According to multiple reports in the media, the Phobians have tabled a sum of $30,000 for the services of the talented goal poacher.Reacting to the speculations on Atinka FM, Alhaji Grunsah said that he will be ‘foolish’ to sanction a move of the player to another club. He said that with Faisal neck-deep in a relegation struggle, it will not be prudent for them to sell their star man. He is however hopeful that the striker will keep up with his good form and get a move abroad. Reports have emerged that Asante Kotoko are interested in signing Peprah to augment their squad in the second half of the season.
