Al-Ahli coach Vladan Milojević has given the top hierarchy the green-light to negotiate for the transfer of the former FK Čukarički wideman.
The Serbian tactician is a huge admirer of the highly-rated eight capped Ghanaian, who is turning heads in the Saudi Pro League on his debut season.
Owusu's assured performances in the middle of the park has attracted the prying eyes of a number of top clubs in the Middle East and Asia who are keeping a close watch on his growth in Saudi Arabia.
Al-Ahli are keen to snap the in-demand Ghana international who has scored seven goals and provided two assists in the Saudi Pro League in his first season.

The club has been monitoring the progress of the highly-rated Ghanaian since he joined Al-Fahya, but they face competition from Chinese side Shanghai SIPG and United Arab Emirates giants Al-Ain to acquire his services.
However, if Al-Ain are to secure the winger's signature, they would need to cough a substantial amount of money to lure him to the club.
It appears Al-Fayha will struggle to hold down their star man as offers continue to pour in from several stellar clubs in the gulf and China.
Al-Ahli are not the only side in the gulf in the chase for Owusu as Qatari giants Al Duhail SC and Al-Sadd are mooted to be interested in the midfielder.
Owusu is a man that is small in stature but massive when it came to ability and heart.
With great acceleration and a thrilling directness about his play, he's got an extremely bright future.
It's been a remarkable turnaround for the hugely-talented wideman since he broke into stardom after his explosive breakthrough with the Black Stars
Owusu started his professional career in 2014 after signing for Serbian side Radnik Sordolica.
He moved to Turkish side Genclerberligi before returning to the Serbian league to sign for Čukarički in 2017 where he scored seven goals and provided 10 assists last season.
He has been capped 8 times by Ghana.
