Niger forward Victorien Adebayor has become the record goalscorer for Inter Allies in the Ghana Premier League, the club has confirmed.
The 23-year-old reached the enviable number with a double as Eleven-Is-To-One stunned Berekum Chelsea 3-1 in the top-flight on Saturday.
His fine showing has attracted interest from giants Asante Kotoko and Hearts of Oak who are in a heated race for his signature.
“In-form attacker Victorien Adebayor is the new club’s record goalscorer in a season after his brace against Berekum Chelsea on Saturday,” Allies have announced via their official website.
“The Nigerien International is on 10 goals and ahead of Sheriff Duo Mohammed and Frederick Boateng who have both recorded nine goals apiece in the 2014/15 and 2015/16 seasons respectively.
“Adebayor has however achieved his feat after playing in only nine league matches and is on track to further extend his record with the league yet to reach the halfway mark.”
Adebayor’s Saturday double put him up as a joint top scorer in the Premier League with 10 goals after Matchweek 10.
He sits alongside Yahaya Mohammed of Aduana Stars who also netted twice in the last matchweek.
