Augsburg, his former club, has also expressed interest, as has PAOK, the club Rahman helped win the Greek Cup.

The 27-year-old has a big decision to make and is taking his time.

Rahman intends to take part in pre-season with the club of his choice in order to have a strong start to the 2022-23 season.

Rahman wants to be in peak condition for the Qatar World Cup in November.

Recently, he made his 45th appearance for Ghana Black Stars and is expected to start in Qatar against Portugal, Uruguay and South Korea.
