The talented midfielder has reportedly become a target for Phobians after his consistent form this season
Ghana FA Cup champions Hearts of Oak have reportedly shown a strong interest in signing Bechem United midfielder Augustine Okrah, AshesGyamera.com can confirm
The 28-year-old has been a consistent performer for Kassim Mingle’s men this season, featuring in 32 Ghana Premier League games and scoring 14 goals as well as four goals in five games in FA Cup.
Okrah’s incredible performance helped Bechem to finish the season on third position in the league; the club’s best ever finish.
Although, Okrah picked up red card against Hearts in the FA Cup final on Sunday, Hearts coach technical team has identified him as one of the players to bolster his squad as he aims to at least qualify to the group stage of Caf Confederation Cup next season.
Hearts coach Samuel Boadu is believed to be an admirer of Okrah and has been monitoring his progress at Bechem.
However, Hearts have to fight Tanzanian giants Simba SC and Azam for Okrah’s signature. Simba in particular sent an advance party to meet Okrah last week and explain their project to him.
Okrah began his professional career at Asante Kotoko before joining Liberty Professionals on loan and later sealed a permanent move to Bechem in 2013.
He won Premier League best player and goal king that season before he went to BK Hacken in Sweden and later Sudan to play for Al Merriekh and Al Hilal.
He helped Sudanese giants Al Merriekh to reach the Caf Champions League semifinals in 2016.
