Accra Hearts of Oak SC have reportedly joined the race for the services of Karela United workaholic midfielder Jean Michel Ourega after an open interest from Asante Kotoko for the Ivorian import.
Reports in the local media hinted that top management members of Accra Hearts of Oak are plotting an audacious swoop for the versatile Ivorian as they look to build a formidable team worthy of ending their domestic hoodoo.
Jean Michel Ourega is one of the best foreigners in the league with a near perfect outing for Karela United FC at the Crossby Awuah Memorial Park in Anyinase.
Record Ghana premier league champions, Asante Kotoko SC, initially inquired about the availability of the Ivorian enforcer as they look to beef up the playing body heading into the 2018/19 CAF interclub competition.
Asante Kotoko might however lower their interest in the energetic midfielder with the imminent arrival of Martin Antwi to the club.
With Samudeen Ibrahim, Patrick Razak and other household players leaving the camp of the Phobians, management have resorted to Jean Michel Ourega as the man to shore up their leaky midfield heading into the new domestic campaign.
