Top Scandinavian sides are flocking after Ghanaian youth midfielder Shafiq Muntari who plays for Ghana Premier League side AshantiGold.
Muntari, 19, has attracted interests from clubs in Finland and Norway following his performance for the Miners in last season’s Ghana Premier League.
But, AshantiGold proved adamant in responding to the interests from the clubs who officially approached the Obuasi-based club.
Ghana Sports Online understands two clubs from Denmark are monitoring the performance of the 1.75m defensive midfielder who is tipped for greatness.
Apart from his core abilities of shielding defences and providing a block for intercepting passes and initiating attacks Muntari is also noted for scoring great finishes with both feet.
Ghana U20 coach Jimmy Cobblah included the utility midfielder in his preliminary squad for the 2019 African Youth Championship in Niger but downgraded him from the final squad as the head coach preferred foreign-based players due to inactivity of players on the Ghanaian scene due to the suspension of domestic football in the West African country.
He played an influential role in Wa All Stars’ title-winning campaign as a teenager and also lifted the Ghanaian Super Cup with the Wa-based side.
The ambidextrous midfielder scored 18 goals and provided as many as 19 assists combined for Brong Ahafo United and King Faisal as teenager during his spells at the club.
He was highly regarded as the best midfielder during his spell at Kumasi-based King Faisal and top assists provided at Brong Ahafo United.
The Wa-born player’s representatives are ready push through a move away from AshantiGold if he receives any foreign offer.
