Ghanaian giants Hearts of Oak have been prompted to approach former Ghana striker Prince Tagoe after he failed to show up at the club’s training grounds on Monday afternoon.
The 27-year-old former TSG Hoffenheim man was expected at the club’s ATTC training grounds on Monday along with Ivorian Ahmed Toure but massive fans who turned up could not see him train with the Phobians.
GHANAsoccernet.com understands Hearts officials will move quickly to open talks with the striker over a possible return to the club.
Tagoe is a free agent after ending his contract with Malaysian outfit FC Kelanta and was linked with a return to the Gulf. However he would consider playing on the local front if Hearts approach him.
Hearts coach Herbert Addo gave an indication he needs a new striker after he lashed out at the lackluster display from his front-men in their loss to Heart of Lions in the GHALCA top-four opener on Sunday.
Ivorian Ahmed Toure who played for Hearts’ rivals Kotoko four seasons ago, trained with Hearts on Monday evening.
