Asante Kotoko have confirmed an official bid from Zesco United for striker Burkina Faso international Songne Yacouba.
The 26-year-old has attracted interest from several top clubs in Africa including the Zambian giants following his superb performance in the 2018/2019 Caf Confederation Cup where the Reds failed to qualify for the quarter-finals.
Officials of Zesco United were so impressed with the performance of Yacouba and are ready to enter into negotiations with Asante Kotoko management to strike a deal anytime soon.
Chief Executive Officer of Asante Kotoko Mr George Amoah said, "Yes that is so. Zesco United have officially written to us about Songne Yacouba and we [Kotoko] are going to reply them today’’, he told SportsworldGhana.com in an exclusive interview.
The goal poacher has not featured for Kotoko in the on-going GFA Special Competition with reports of uncertainty over his stay at the club coming to an end.
He bagged two goals during Kotoko’s campaign in the Caf Confederation Cup, registering five assists.
Yacouba has also been on the radar of Egyptian giants Al Ahly, with Sudanese duo Al Hilal and Al-Merrikh SC also reported to be interested in the forward.
