Ghana’s midfield revelation at the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations, Afriyie Acquah will sign for big-spending Italian side Sampdoria today, Ghana’s leading football news outlet can exclusively reveal.

Ghana’s leading football website can confirm the player’s agent Oliver Arthur is in Malabo to conclude the deal with the impressive midfielder.

Acquah, owned by German Bundesliga side TSG Hoffenhiem, is currently on loan for the season at Parma.

The 22-year-old has had a decent campaign at the Nations Cup after starting in Ghana’s last three matches to reach the semi-final.

He has been very formidable in the middle and played a huge role in the revival of the Black Stars after an opening day defeat to Senegal.

Acquah made 12 Serie A appearances before the winter break.
