Ghanaian youngster Ibrahim Sulemana joins Cagliari from Hellas Verona

Published on: 01 July 2023

Ghanaian midfielder Ibrahim Sulemana has completed a transfer to newly-promoted Serie A side Cagliari from rivals Hellas Verona.

The talented midfielder has signed a long-term contract that will keep him at the club until June 2027.

Sulemana's impressive performances in his debut season in the Italian top flight caught the eye of Cagliari, who wasted no time in securing his services.

Sulemana, just 20 years old, rose through the ranks at Hellas Verona, initially playing for the club's U-19 team.

He joined the Verona side after departing from Atalanta, where he had previously settled after leaving Ghana.

The young talent's dedication and skills propelled him to the senior team ahead of the 2022/23 season.

Making his debut in October 2022 as a substitute during Verona's 1-2 loss to Salernitana, Sulemana quickly made an impact.

Over the course of the season, he showcased his abilities in 17 Serie A matches.

The youngster will now join Cagliari, who only returned to the top flight after beating Bari in the promotion playoff under the guidance of Claudio Ranieri.
