Ghana Premier League giants, Accra Hearts of Oak are in talks with Algerian top-flight side, USM Algiers to sign former Kumasi Asante Kotoko striker, Kwame Opoku.
The report claims the Rainbows have agreed to pay USM Algiers the player’s asking price.
According to Kumasi-based Adehye FM, the Algerian side wants $120,000 after paying $300, 000 for him from Asante Kotoko.
The 23-year-old striker currently plays for Saudi Arabian side, Najran SoCon on loan from USM Alger.
Opoku joined the North African side on a four and half years contract with USM Alger for 350,000 euros.
According to Ghanasportspage.com, Asante Kotoko are not willing to re-sign their top striker who bagged seven goals in fifteen games last two seasons before leaving the shores of Ghana.
But the Rainbows have agreed and the deal could be sealed soon as talks between both clubs are ongoing.
After joining the Algerian top-flight side only in the second round of the season in 2021, Opoku made an immediate impact and ended his first season in Algeria with 5 goals and 4 assists in 17 matches in all competitions.
However, he ended up leaving the shores of North Africa to sign a loan deal with the Saudi Arabian side.
