Mamelodi Sundowns reportedly interested in Ghanaian striker Mahatma Otoo

Sundowns are believed to have lined-up a whopping R7 million offer for the Hearts of Oak striker Mahatma Otoo

Mamelodi Sundowns might have signed close to 11 new players during the current transfer window period, but it seems like they are not done as yet.

The Tshwane giants have reportedly approached Ghanaian club Hearts of Oak for the services of their star striker Mahatma Otoo.

Media reports in Ghana suggest that Otoo is also wanted by TP Mazembe, who reportedly have to beat Sundowns’ R7 million bid for the player.

Apparently, Sundowns were given the permission to talk to Otoo when the Black Stars were in South Africa two weeks ago, but nothing was finalized.

Sundowns will fly to Ghana as they continue with their pre-season training, and they have confirmed that they will play two friendly games against Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko.

However, it is not clear whether the deal to sign Otoo will be finalized after the friendly games or not, but the 21-year-old forward is likely to leave Hearts of Oak.

Otoo finished the 2012/2013 Ghana Premier League season top of the goalscoring charts with 20 goals.

The Brazilians are expected to offload more than 14 players ahead of the new season to open space for the new signings.
