Ghanaian giants Asante Kotoko have announced that they have opened talks with Zesco United for the services of striker Songne Yacouba.

Orlando Pirates, Al Ahly, and Zamalek are also said to have shown interest in the lanky striker.

It seems, however, that the trio is yet to make their bids because Kotoko have only confirmed an approach from Zesco.

“We have agreed to open negotiations with Zesco United for players, @Yacoubasongne1 and Emmanuel Gyamfi,” read a tweet from Kotoko’s official Twitter account.

Yacouba scored twice and made five assists in nine appearances for Kotoko in the Caf Confederation Cup this season.
