Zesco United have penned an official letter to Ghanaian giants Asante Kotoko seeking the services of striker Songne Yacouba.

The Zambian club wants to supplement their squad with Yacouba and have asked the Reds to name their price for their prized asset.

The Porcupine Warriors goal poacher Yacouba has become a hot cake following his impressive performance for the club in the CAF Confederation Cup.

Management of Kotoko will meet on Monday April 8, 2019 to decide on the future of the 26-year old according to reports.

Management of the club have revealed in the past that if a good offer comes, they will let the striker leave.
