Asante Kotoko say they have opened talks with Zesco United over the transfer of key players Songne Yacouba and Emmanuel Gyamfi.
The negotiations started on Monday with Zesco officials looking to wrap up the move for the duo, who contributed immensely to Kotoko’s success in Africa this season.
Kotoko reached the group stage of the Caf Confederation Cup for the first time in 11 years but failed to qualify from the group after failing to win their last game against the Zambian side. Yacouba was involved in six goals (1G, 5A) while Gyamfi scored three goals.
Kotoko defeated Zesco United 2-1 in Kumasi. Yacouba assisted all two goals – including Gyamfi’s winner.
Unlike Gyamfi, Yacouba hasn’t played for the Porcupine Warriors since Kotoko exited the Confederation Cup, fuelling his imminent departure.
Yacouba, 27, has been Kotoko’s main man upfront since joining from Stade Malien in January 2018.
