Kotoko could be gazumped in their bid to land New Edubiase midfielder Asiedu Atobrah.
American Major League side Colombus Crew have entered the race to prize away the influential enforcer from the Bekwai-based side.
Crew manager Robert Warzycha is looking to revamp his midfield and reports are mounting that the American side have stepped up their interest in the youngster.
Kotoko were the favourites to procure his signature, but the deal has since stalled. Now Crew are said to have made a bid to snatch Atobrah off their hands.
Edubiase chief Abdul Salam Yakubu has revealed Kotoko must up their prize or risk losing him to a foreign a club.
“We have a relationship with Kotoko but that does not mean we’ll allow the player (Atobrah) to join them on the cheap,”
Yakubu told Happy FM
“They have to up their prize because there are so many clubs interested in his signature.
“American Major League side Colombus Crew want him desperately and have been in contact with us.They want him on loan.
“But the boy wants to play for Kotoko but will also not rule out a move abroad. It’s all up to Kotoko and how much they can offer.”
Atobrah has been one of Edubiase’s most exciting talents over the past two years and has courted massive interest from clubs home and abroad.
