I’m working towards Black Stars call-up - Former Chelsea youth team striker David Opoku

The striker admits that his next move is crucial since he is working towards gaining a Ghana senior team call-up
Talented young Ghanaian forward David Manuel Osei Poku is optimistic that his next move is going to be very crucial as he seeks a bigger platform to catch the eyes of Black Stars coach Kwesi Appiah.

The former Chelsea of England youth team player was very instrumental for Finnish giants Mypa where he played this season.

The youngster left the Blues’ youth team to USA for his university education where he played for MLS side Santa Barbara and was part of the Black Meteors team under Appiah.

“My next move in the winter is going to be crucial, my agent is in talks with some top clubs in France, Portugal, Germany and Poland who have all expressed interest in signing me,” Poku told Goal.com Ghana in an exclusive interview.

“Personally, I am hoping for a good deal to prove myself more to earn a Black Stars call-up after winning everything in the MLS including the best striker and excelling with Mypa.”

The 20-year-old was discovered by the late Sly Tetteh and coach Jones Atuquayefio and also honed his talent at the Right to Dream Academy in Ghana.

“Playing in Chelsea really shaped my career. It was great. I learnt a lot playing with my mates Josh McEachran, Gael Kakuta, Billy Clifford and others,” he said.
