Soweto giants Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates have been advised to step up their pursuit of an in-demand West African striker who has set the scene alight in the Ghana Premier League.

Chiefs and Pirates have both reportedly shown interest in Cameroon striker Franck Mbella Etouga (20).

AmaKhosi have already put in an official bid while Pirates have also been asking questions. 

Etouga was crowned a league winner with Asante Kotoko on Sunday and is on his way to closing off the season as the league’s top scorer and become the first foreign player to take home that award.

He has scored 21 league goals with a game to spare which will be played this weekend when the Ghana Premier League finally ends.

“I think it will be a good choice for both teams though there are European teams that are also looking at him,” retired Cameroon striker Alain Amougou told

Amougou spent three years at Sundowns, with his 15 goals in his first season aiding The Brazilians to their third consecutive league title in 1999/00.

Etouga is a former Cameroon Under-20 forward joined Kotoko last year from AS Fortuna de Mfou and has been knocking on the Indomitable Lions door having been selected in the preliminary squad for the 2023 AFCON qualifiers before being dropped. 

Reports in Ghana also claim there is interest from French club Saint-Etienne, Galatasaray of Turkey and Spanish clubs SD Eibar and Atletico Madrid.
