After reportedly being linked to Premier League teams Everton and Chelsea, the Russian club have won the battle for the talented 21-year-old's signature.

The Ghana international was the top scorer in Sweden this term, netting 23 goals in 29 appearances.

    Let just pray for him to succeed. There are many Africans in Russia particularly his new club Spartak Moscow has many Africans. If he succeeds there a bigger club will go for him.
