Kwame Opoku’s transfer to Algerian side USM Algiers called off – Sources

Kwame Opoku’s transfer from Asante Kotoko to Algerian side USM Algiers has collapsed according to multiple reports.

On Saturday, reports emerged that Kotoko are in talks with the Algerian side about a possible move for their striker.

According to reports, the Algerian side were willing to offer the Ghana Premier League side $300,000 for the services of the player but Kotoko demanded more.

Kwame Opoku through his representatives have kicked against the move to Algeria informing the Kotoko CEO that it will not suit his client to move to North Africa mid-season and also they aspire to have better offers than the Maghreb region should he finish the season with Kotoko.

The CEO of the club, Nana Yaw Amponsah has agreed and the plug on the deal has been pulled meaning the former Nkoranza Warriors striker will stay with Asante Kotoko at least for the remainder of the season.

Kwame Opoku has been a revelation for Asante Kotoko this season scoring eight goals in the Ghana Premier League while scoring once in the CAF Confederations Cup.

His form has attracted interest from an array of clubs on the African continent with the likes of Zamalek, Vita Club, Al Hilal and others have expressed interest in the striker.

Kwame Opoku has seven league goals in his debut Ghana Premier League season and a goal in Asante Kotoko’s failed African campaign.
