Tanzanian giants Yanga SC are in advanced discussions with former Asante Kotoko forward Songné Yacouba, GHANAsoccernet.com can exclusively report.
Yacouba is currently a free-agent after failing to extend his contract with the Porcupine Warriors in April.
The Burkina Faso international has been the subject of transfer interest from a host of clubs including Simba SC, Orlando Pirates and Zambian giants Zesco United.
GHANAsoccernet.com reported earlier this week that Simba SC commenced talks with the deadly forward but have put their interest on hold after club chief Senzo Mazingisa lambasted the player for his lack of transparency.
But reports reaching the Ghanaian portal suggest that the player could join rivals Yanga SC in the coming days.
The Jangwani-based outfit are in advanced talks with the player after getting the green-light from Asante Kotoko.
Yanga SC Chairman Dr. Mshindo Msolla made phone calls to Asante Kotoko to ascertain the real situation between the player and his former employees, which the Ghanaian giants confirmed that he is indeed a free agent.
The deal is however being dragged after Yacouba’s agent quoted $150,000 as their asking price but the Yellow and Green lads are willing to pay $100,000.
Yanga are reported to be in the hunt for seven players as demanded by coach Luc Eymael.
Yacouba failed to hit the back of the twine in the seven matches he played for Asante Kotoko in the 2019/20 Ghana Premier League campaign before the season was suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic.
