Reports gathered by GHANASoccernet.com are that Asante Kotoko will test the resolve of bitter rivals Hearts of Oak with a hefty bid for their Ivorian import Robin Gnagne.
The Porcupine Warriors are closing in on a third consecutive league title and could be crown champions as early as next week if Heart of Lions lose to Medeama in a delayed match on Sunday.
Kotoko want to strengthen their defence ahead of playing in next seasonâ€™s CAF Champions League and have identified the centre-back as the missing piece in their jigsaw.
A Hearts insider has revealed to GHANASoccernet.com that Gnagne is getting frustrated by the internal wrangling in the club and has questioned the ambitions of the club in the near future.
â€œI am telling you that underground information I have is that even Rubin Gnagne could join Kotoko next season,â€ he told GHANASoccernet.com
â€œMe I have heard Opoku Nti is interested in him and if care is not taken we could lose him to Kotoko.
â€œHearts problems are making some of the senior players considering their position with the club.â€
Gnagne has been Hearts of Oakâ€™s best performer for the season.
