Sochaux and Nice pursue Ghana forward Opoku Agyemang

The former Al Sadd player could land a new deal in France early next year after terminating contract with Bulgarian side Levski Sofia
Ghana international striker Opoku Agyemang Prempeh is likely to move to France when the January winter transfer opens as his French agent has started talks again with Sochaux and Nice who have expressed interest in the player, Ghana can confirm.

Agyemang, 23, terminated his three years contract with Bulgarian side Levski Sofia on Monday citing the low level of the Bulgarian league which is not helping his quest of getting back to form in order to get into the Ghana setup again after a long layoff.

Reports in the French media are that a deal could be struck for the player to play in France in January and Sochaux who are already having Ghanaian winger Ishmael Yartey are the main front runners to secure the player’s signature.

Meanwhile, the player has stated that a move back to Qatar is also possible but he fancy playing in a big European league which can help him make a quick return to the Ghana team.

“My former coach at Al Sadd Cosmin Olariu who is now handling Al Ain wants me to come back to Qatar and play for Al Ain, but it all depends on my agent who is in France,” he told Accra-based Happy FM.

The former Obuasi AshantiGold, CS Sfaxien and Al Sadd midfielder was on the verge of signing for Sochaux but the move collapsed at the last minute making him to sign for the Bulgarian giants.
