The transfer window is a frantic period at the best of times, with clubs frenetically plunging into the transfer window in search of quick fixes to their cracks that have appeared in their respective clubs. With the 2021/2022 Ghanaian Premier league ending last weekend, a lot of clubs are reportedly busy in the market scouring for talents to beef up their squads.

There are still some immensely talented footballers (others of dubious quality) still searching for clubs and there is the possibility that they could get back to the top as was the case seasons ago.

 

We’ve taken a look at some players who will be the main figures of the transfer window in the coming weeks.

Ishmael Abdul Ganiyu

Given his brilliant performances for Kotoko since he arrived from Karela United, the name of Abdul Ganiyu is one known by many at the club. The intelligent defender can be trusted to effectively organise a defence, thanks to his great aerial and tackling abilities.

He's also able to drive forward his team with the ball from his own half, and create chances for his attacking teammates as a result and is currently one of the most important players at the club.

No one is more aware of this fact than Mariano Barreto and it will therefore be fascinating to see what happens in the next few months.

Felix Annan

Already one of the most high-profile names in the rumour mill, Kotoko goal custodian Felix Annan’s future remains up in the air.

Hearts of Oak are reportedly pushing to make him their marquee signing for next season, but the Porcupine Warriors are keen on keeping him at least for next season.

A host of clubs have been monitoring him and with regular minutes increasingly becoming hard to come by, a mad scramble for his signature is expected to ensue over the coming months.

Kotoko are understandably keen to keep hold of the goalkeeper, but face a losing battle with his services. So Annan’s name will remain in the headlines for a little while yet.

Kwame Peprah

It was no surprise to see Peprah linked to a number of clubs. The young forward so deserves all the buzz around him. He’s scored 10 goals and 10 assists for his side.

The silky forward has frequently dazzled with his skill, pace and trickery. King Faisal say they are under no pressure to sell their star player, but his ability to change games in an instant may well get some Premier League sides sniffing around.

Diawisie Taylor

As seems to be the case with every transfer window, Karela forward Diawisie Taylor is a man in demand. Deals of that magnitude take real time to figure out, which is why this story will rumble on for a little while yet.

As one of a finite group of elite forwards who are available for transfer, almost every Ghanaian top side wants to sign him.

Ending the season as league’s top scorer will surely result in an increase in his price tag. Where is he headed? We await!

Samuel Abbey Ashie Quaye

The Great Olympics wonderkid looks set to take the next step in his career next season by joining a top side, but which side will that be? He’s made decent appearances so far in the league and even thrived when assigned a left-back role.

He loves to take on defences with his dribbling ability among the best in the league. And then there are the nutmegs. And there have been plenty of them. Along with his breathtaking consistency and reliability, he can also produce some moments of unrivalled spectacular wonder.

One thing is for certain is that Olympics won’t be held to ransom over their prize asset. We might not know where he’s going to end up, but he’s definitely going to be on the move.

Augustine Okrah

With uncertainty surrounding his future at the club, speculation will only intensify over the coming months. After sojourns abroad, Okrah joined Kotoko with so much promise and right from the off, it was clear that he was going to be a wonderful piece of business.

Once a marauding winger and playmaker of exceptional quality, Augustine Okrah has become a little laid-back for the club in recent times.

With a proposed move to RS Berkane hitting a snag, no one knows if Kotoko will retain him when his contract expires in December.

Gladson Awako

There has been one question surrounding Awako for the last few months - will he join Hearts? Awako has a decision to make. He has few months remaining on his contract and is tempted to call it quits and test himself somewhere else, but Olympics’ reluctance to agree a fee has prevented a move to Hearts thus far.

Until he puts pen to paper on a contract somewhere, there will be interest from countless other sides. This one is far from over.

Evans Owusu

The Liberty Professionals left-back is a delight to watch. He is an energetic presence and provides plenty of cut and thrust down the left flank, but he isn’t found wanting defensively.

He likes to combine with his left winger, progressing down the line with his 1 -2s and transitions, rather than looking to beat players with skill or pace. Perhaps his biggest strength is his game intelligence.

He could be an ideal signing for any club. Sadly, he couldn’t help the Scientific Soccer Lads beat the drop.

George Asamoah

Excitement isn't always about speed and dribbling. It's often about unpredictability, and that's what George Asamoah brings. Not the biggest of midfielders, neither is he among the strongest.

His greatest weapon is his mind, and that's on show whenever he whips out the kind of pass you wouldn't even see in a video game. There has been interest in Asamoah from some top clubs in the division. 

Seth Osei

Unjust is an adequate summation. Why? Because on his day the tricky winger slots gently into the 'unplayable' category, just as effortlessly as he'd jink his way past opposition players unnoticed. Not just good, he is very good. That's saying something. 

Despite only being at Ashantigold for a few months, Osei has established himself as a real fan-favourite, but even supporters of other sides can't get enough of watching him.

Dennis Korsah

Dennis Korsah is perhaps the most cavalier and polarising defender in the league. As an attacking tour de force, the 25-year-old university graduate is nothing short of outstanding.

He aggressively attacks the left side with gusto, always offering an outlet, while his ability on the ball, featuring a wide array of tricks with which to go past people, have made him a hit in the league and one of the first names on the team sheet.

It came as no surprise when he was handed an invite to join the Black Stars by Akonnor. He likes taking set pieces and is quite good at them too. With a lot of clubs reportedly interested in him, Korsah’s bromance with Ebusua Dwarfs could end soon.

Maxwell Abbey Ashie Quaye

Quaye has had a seamless evolution from a goalkeeper into a new role as a no.9.Hardly possessing elegance when in possession, he is a talent who thrived on challenges and defied opponents to take the ball from him despite less than total control of it.

His searing pace and determination is matched by few and compromised by many, Passion and disregard for things in his way is an attitude maintained both in and out of his chosen profession.
