The Accra-based club are set to be locked in a battle with the Porcupine Warriors over the signature of the country’s all-time topscorer ahead of the new season
Legon Cities FC could hijack Asante Kotoko’s plan to sign former Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan ahead of the 2020-21 Ghana Premier League season, AshesGyamera.com understands.
With barely three weeks before the season kicks off, Kotoko seem reluctant to cough out several bundles of dollars to entice Gyan despite the 34-year-old publicly ffirmed his interest to join them before be finally retires.
In effect, our sources have revealed that Gyan could be heading to Legon Cities following an interest expressed by the club’s owners as they seek to improve their squad and further increase their revenues off the field of play.
With Gyan setting up almost all his companies as well having his family in Accra, the former Sunderland record signing could likely accept the bid and remain in the capital city instead of moving to Kumasi.
Kotoko have already signed nine new players and reports suggest that head coach Maxwell Konadu is satisfied with the squad in depth since he believes Gyan’s inclusion will only improve their commercial performance not their ambitions to win the Ghana Premier League and qualify to group stage of Caf Champions League for the first time in several years.
