Portuguese giants Porto in race to sign Ghana defender Daniel Opare

Daniel Opare could be moving to Portugal at the start of next season

Portuguese giants Porto are in the running to sign Ghanaian defender Daniel Opare from Belgian side Standard Liege, according to the player’s agent.

The highly rated full-back will be out of contract in June and he has already decided to leave the Belgian giants for greener pastures at the end of the season.

O Jogo has learned that FC Porto are one of the favourites for his signature and the player’s agent has moved to confirm those reports.

“They are, certainly, on the list,“ Opare’s official representative confirmed to O Jogo.

Daniel Opare, 23, began his professional career at Ashanti Gold and he also played for Sfax and Real Madrid Castilla before joining Standard in 2010.

He has since established himself as one of the best right-backs in Belgian Jupiler Pro League, making a total of 91 league appearances.

Opare has made Ghana’s provisional squad for the 2014 World Cup and he is widely expected to play an important role at the tournament finals.
