Tunisian giants Espérance Sportive de Tunis are looking to sign Ghana striker Charles Diawisie Taylor from topflight side Karela United in the coming days.
The 21-year-old emerged the 2020/21 Ghana Premier League golden boot winner with 18 goals and has been a subject of interest from many a club on the African continent.
Providing 7 assists, Taylor thus directly contributed 25 – representing 59.5% – of the 42 goals scored by Karela last season.
Barring any development, Taylor is scheduled to fly out of Accra for Tunis on Sunday, September 12.
Taylor would sign a four-year contract if he passes a mandatory medical in the ensuing days, Tunisian website Foot 24 also reported.
Espérance will reportedly pay Karela United an agreed $150,000 as transfer fee while there is a 20% onward fee in the event of a future transfer.
Once the switch materializes, Diawisie Taylor will become the second Ghanaian – after Percious Boah – to join the new-look young Espérance squad ahead of the 2021/22 season.
Local giants Asante Kotoko were reported to have moved for Taylor’s signature.
