Ghana could lose the services of Latif Blessing after the former Liberty Professional star made a statement suggesting he still have the "dream" to play for the US.

A push for American citizenship backed by the desire to wear the US jersey could see the Black Stars losing another asset, who won the 2015/16 Ghana Premier League goal king.

Blessing, who was subsequently adjudged the Most Valuable Player of the 2015/16 Ghana Premier League is yet to be capped by Ghana.

He was included in the provisional Ghanaian squad for the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations but wasn’t selected for the final 23-man roster

Reportedly frustrated at a lack of call-ups for the Ghanian national team, the former Liberty Professional striker is hinting at the possibility of one day playing for the US national team.

In response to a picture posted on Instagram of a USA jersey with Blessing and No. 7 on the back, Blessing wrote “#DREAM” followed by three American flags, “heart emoji IS GOD.”
