The clinical finisher failed to impress during his trials with the Romanian giants outfit but that has not deterred the Porcupine Warriors from his pursuit having penciled him down for the past season
Asante Kotoko have reignited their interest in Ashanti Gold skipper Shafiu Mumuni after failing to live up to expectations during his trials with Romanian top division heavyweights CFR Cluj.
The 24-year-old marksman continues to be the chief target for the Baba Yara Stadium outfit having made several attempts to snatch him from their city rivals since last term.
Our source close to the record Ghanaian league champions has hinted us that manager Maxwell Konadu wants to beef up his frontline options with the acquisition of the prolific frontman as he is ready to offload dead wood Richard Arthur in order to make room for the formation of vulnerable attacking duo of Mumuni and Kwame Poku for the remainder of the suspended top flight season.
Kickgh.com understands that Kotoko are likely to end their marriage with contract-rebel Burkina Faso attacker Songne Yacouba and are bent on replacing him with the one-time Black Stars invitee centre-forward.
