Diawisie Taylor: Espérance set to sign GPL golden boot winner

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.
