Top Udinese scout Andrea Carnevale has arrived in Spain to monitor the performance of Granada and observe the development of Ghanaian youngster Fatau Mohammed.

Udinese owners – the Pozzo family, own a stake in the Spanish club and have a transfer right in players playing at the La Liga club and as the Colombian defender has attracted interest around him, but Udinese manager Francesco Guidolin has also delegated Carnevale to monitor the progress of Ghanaian youngster Fatau Mohammed.

Fatau, 21, moved to Spain from Udinese two season ago and played at two different lower division sides before joining Granada’s second string side.

But Udinese still have a share in the young midfielder’s transfer rights and if the Italians are satisfied with his performance at the end of the season, the could recall him.

Derek Boateng’s younger brother – Richard Boateng, who is also on loan at Granada from Udinese could also be assessed by the scout from Stadio Communale Fruili.

Fatau has played 7 times for Granada in the Spanish La Liga so far in the season while Boateng has played once, coming off the bench as a 76th minute replacement for Granada in their 4-0 loss at Atletic Club in late February.
