Asante Kotoko’s dynamic midfielder, Richmond Lamptey, has become the focus of interest for Libyan club Al Ta’awon, with his stellar performances in the ongoing season catching the eye of several football clubs.
Lamptey’s standout displays not only earned him recognition in the form of a spot in the Black Stars’ 27-man squad for the AFCON 2023 tournament but also put him on the radar of foreign clubs.
The former Inter Allies star has been a driving force behind Asante Kotoko’s success, with his influential role contributing significantly to the team’s current third position in the Ghana Premier League. Lamptey’s midfield prowess has made him a sought-after player, and talks of a potential transfer have surfaced.
Should an agreement be reached between Lamptey and the interested clubs, Asante Kotoko might see the departure of one of their key players. Lamptey’s imminent return to join his Kotoko teammates for the second half of the season adds an element of anticipation to how the transfer speculations might unfold.
It’s worth noting that the Ghana Premier League has already witnessed the departure of another player to the Libyan league, as Lamptey’s national teammate Jonathan Sowah made a move to Al Nasr in January.
