Published on: 28 October 2019

RCD Mallorca midfielder Iddrisu Baba is eyeing a call-up to the senior national team of Ghana, the Black Stars ahead of the upcoming 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.

Baba is presently one of the standout midfielders in the ongoing 2019/20 Spanish La Liga.

He has made 10 appearances for Real Mallorca so far, putting up Man of the Match performances on match days.

"My dream is to make my debut for Ghana and I am working hard and looking up to it [call-up to the Black Stars]," Baba said in an interview with RCD Mallorca TV

"Some of us grew up watching Michael Essien, Sulley Muntari and Asamoah Gyan. Essien has been my role model all this years, I can see we have things in common, I want to emulate him."

The 23-year-old was handed an improved contract which will keep him at the Iberostar Stadium outfit until summer 2024.

Following his impressive displays, he has been linked with a move to Getafe CF and Atletico Madrid ahead of the January transfer window.

He played a key role in RCD Mallorca's promotion to the Spanish top flight with 25 league appearances last term.
