The Genoa player was on loan at Serie B side, Sassuolo, last season and scored 12 goals in all competitions.

The Old Lady are prepared to pay $5 million for his services.

His agent, Oliver Arthur, told Ghana that even though a deal is yet to be signed, part of the agreement has been reached with the Bianconeri.

If the deal is finally firmed up, the 19-year-old will join fellow Ghanaian, Kwadwo Asamoah, at Turin. He started his career with Ghanaian second-tier side, Bechem United.
