Asante Kotoko is extremely interested in signing Abdul Latif Anabila this summer, according to several reports in the local media.
The Ashantigold midfielder is on a low wage after joining the Miners over the last few years and is looking for a monster new contract, either in Kotoko or abroad.
The Porcupines apparently have considered bids on two previous occasions, only to decide for separate reasons that they would stick with what they had
He was seen as a bad fit for Kjetil Zachariassen’s system, and it’s easy to see why. The club was determined to give the Norwegian what he needed to succeed.
But now Coach Maxwell Konadu, with a more dynamic and freeform style, is the boss, and the club could do with a player in Anabila’s style.
There are uncertainties around Justice Blay’s permanent deal from Medeama to the Reds, Adom Frimpong looks a little inconsistent with his display in Konadu’s current setup, Mudasiru Salifu battling with injuries, Collins Ameyaw not being able to live up to the billing. Anabila offers a superb balance of attacking and defensive qualities, along with a brilliant engine to complement both.
He could play a variety of roles in Maxwell Konadu’s team, and while he isn’t coming cheap, when you compare it to the outlay on the midfielders the club has bought in recent years, it’s not expensive either.
