Hearts of Oak public relations office Kwame Opare Addo has bemoaned the club's struggle to identify potential striking options.

The Phobians are on the lookout for a new hitman following the departure of Kwame Kizito after last season.

Their need for reinforcement became even more apparent during the recent Ghalca G8 tournament.

“We are all talking about strikers; someone should show me a potent striker in Ghana now," Opare told Fox FM.

"There's no potent striker in Ghana. That’s what we’ve all been searching for. 

"The club is working hard to find solutions to the attacking [problem] in the team, the fans should calm down."

The club's management has also come under criticisms following the departure of about five key players, including Kizito, after last season. 

According to the supporters, management "watched on" as contracts of the players in question expired.

“People are saying we don’t know the direction we are taking the club," Opare added.

"What I want to say is, we know the direction we are going, that is why even after losing some of our key players, we still remain competitive and are competing at the highest level."

Hearts, who finished third in the Ghana Premier League last season, lost 2-1 to newly-promoted Dreams FC in the final of the G8 tournament on Sunday.
