Allsports.com.gh reported earlier that English Premier League top sides are in a fierce battle to snatch 18 year old Ghanaian whizkid, Godfred Donsah and now the player’s agent has confirmed that indeed not less than four clubs have made official approaches.
Tottenham Hotspurs of course did enquire about the midfielder on the books of Serie A side, Cagliari way back last month during the January transfer window but the race has become even keener following the expression of interest by Premier League champions, Manchester City as well as Liverpool and Arsenal.
Reports in Italy confirmed that Tottenham had approached Cagliari regarding the availability of Donsah, but the Serie A club are not keen to sell because they’re currently in a relegation battle.
Donsah is contracted to the club until June 2018 and therefore Cagliari will not feel pressured into selling the 18 year old, although if they drop down to Serie B they will find it difficult to hold on to their key players.
Arsenal and Man City indeed did send scouts to watch Donsah who has been compared to his idol, Michael Essien feature in an Italian top flight game last night against Inter Milan in a 1-2 setback.
“There’s lots of interest in Donsah as of now. Especially from clubs in UK. Manchester City, Liverpool, Tottenham and Arsenal have made official enquiries about him. Until now they are scouting him and there’s nothing concrete,” said Oliver Arthur, agent of Donsah.
Arthur also explained that with England having what he considers to be the best league int he world, it’s a dream for players to get there and have genuine hopes of doing so. Donsah’s young age and the fact that he’s already attracting much interest gives him a good chance of fulfilling that dream.
Cagliari would be loathe to lose the player but obviously wouldn’t stand in his way if a significant offer was made either during the summer transfer window or further into the future.
“The player is happy to hear of all this interest and the fact that his efforts are been noticed by bigger clubs,” Agent Arthur revealed. Follow @thedonplato
