An unnamed club in Saudi Arabia have tabled a $300,000 deal for Hearts of Oak striker Mahatma Otoo, GHANAsoccernet.com can exclusively reveal.
The 20-year-old has just recently been appointed the substantive captain of the former African champions.
Otoo has been consistently linked to moves in Europe but none of them have materialized so far.
The former Sporting Mirren hitman emerged the top goal scorer in Ghana’s U-23 team’s successful run at the 2011 All Africa Games in Maputo, Mozambique.
Officials of Hearts according to GHANAsoccernet sources are in deep negotiations with the club and are pushing for a higher fee.
There are however some members of the club’s top hierarchy who are opposed to the prospective move.
A deal is however likely to be struck if the Saudi club is able to meet the demands of the Accra-based club.
Hearts have already signed Gilbert Fiamenyo and with the seeming return to form of striker Edward Affum, Otoo could be sold to balance the club’s books before the Premier League season starts on October 7.
