Ghana’s Afriyie Acquah looks set to extend his stay at Italian side, FC Torino.
The midfielder was close to a summer exit few days ago but the club’s coach Sinisa Mihajlovic blocked the move, claiming the Ghanaian international remained a key part of his plans for the season and beyond.
Acquah, 25, is halfway through his four-year deal with Torino during which he has featured 46 times for ‘The Maroons’ scoring four goals.
On August 26, the Torino manager said in a pre-match briefing:
“…we spoke yesterday and we want to extend his [Afriyie Acquah] contract.”
Now his agent, Oliver Arthur, has validated the news, adding talks have been set to begin in the coming week.
“It’s true, the President has confirmed a renewal of the contract for Acquah. We would have discussions next week,” Arthur told toro-it
“Lots of the people are on vacation this week and the player was also with the National Team. Even with the player’s dream of playing one day in England, he is committed to Torino and ready to renew his contract.”
Afriyie Acquah was a late addition to Ghana’s squad for the just ended international break. He excelled when he was handed a starting berth in the Black Stars’ 5-1 thrashing of Congo in Brazzaville last Tuesday.
