Accra Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko are in a battle for Nigerien attacker Victorien Anje Adebayor, Ghanasportsonline.com can reveal.
The two Clubs are reportedly in talks with the forward who scored two goals for his country at the WAFU Cup of Nations.
Adebayor attracted interest from Kotoko and Hearts Of Oak who had their Coaches in Cape Coast to watch the competition.
The two Clubs will now be at each other as they jostle for the signature of the AS Douanes forward.
Ghanasportsonline.com checks reveal the striker has been strongly linked to French lower division side US Raon-l’Étape.
The Nigerian-born is believed to have agreed a pre-contract with US Raon-l’Étape but yet to officially sign for the Club.
A lucrative offer from Kotoko or Hearts could lure the 20-year-old to the Ghana Premier League next season.
The former Atcha Académie Niamey player has only been capped 13 times by his National team scoring two goals.
He was named in the WAFU Cup of Nations team of the tournament after helping his country to win bronze at the competition.
Already Kotoko have reportedly expressed interest in Guinean attacker Seydouba Camara and will look forward to completing a deal with Adebayor.
Both Kotoko and Hearts are eager to beef up their team next season after a patchy campaign in this season’s Ghana Premier League.
