Rivals Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko are in a tussle to sign Gabonese-based Ghanaian winger, Alidu Namhan according to reports.

The Ghanaian was instrumental in Union Sportive’s Coupe de Gabon triumph last season and the Ghanaian clubs want to snatch the 22-year-old talented attacker.

Namhan’s manager, Shalla Musah confirmed the interest from both clubs as well as a club from Jordan.

“We’re currently in talks with Hearts for a possible switch and a club in Jordan as we speak. I have also received calls from Kumasi indicating that Kotoko have also expressed interest in him (Namhan), after seeing some of his videos from Gabon,” he told a reporter in an interview.

Mr Musah also explained that aside the above mentioned, the former Danbort FC and Real Tamale United (RTU) playmaker is also closely monitored by FC Pelican in Gabon, one of the top clubs there.
