Asante Kotoko are keen to bolster their squad with the acquisition of four players from Burkina Faso.
Porcupines pocket-bag Dr Kwame Kyei was in Ouagadougou himself to watch four key players in the Stallions squad and has targeted them for next season.
Ghana Sports sources understand the businessman who is in charge of the Reds has already began talks with parties involved in the possible transfer of the quartet from Burkina Faso.
Dr Kyei was in the stands throughout Ghana’s Black Stars B’s 2-2 draw their border neighbhours and watched the game alongside two technical experts who have rubber-stamped their transfer target.
The Porcupine Warriors will further assess the quartet when they feature for the Stallions against the Black Stars B at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in their reverse fixture during the weekend.
Kotoko have been linked with a move for Hearts of Oak pair Thomas Abbey and Winful Cobbinah but the move looks highly impossibly as the duo appear to have set their sights on move abroad.
Abbey has openly rejected the reports linking him to Kotoko while Cobbinah has expressed his willingness to repay the Phobians for the confidence repose in him on his second spell at the club.
