1. Mahatmo Otoo
The former Hearts of Oak goal poacher plies his trade in the Turkish second-tier for Balıkesirspor. He is currently the club’s top player. He has not been given a fair deal regarding Black Stars’ call-up. For Kwesi Appiah to build a strong frontline, he must invite Mahatma Otoo.
2. Alfred Duncan
He has been in top form for Sassuolo in the Italian Serie A in the ongoing season. Duncan has covered lots of grounds than any Sassuolo player this term. With his superb form, he really deserves a call into the Black Stars to augment the team’s midfield.
3. Albert Adomah
Last season, he nearly qualified Aston Villa to the English Premier League. Since the new season started three weeks ago, he has played all six games. Adomah is a natural winger and that is what Kwesi Appiah’s team lack now.
4. Jeffrey Schlupp
Schlupp has been in good shape in the ongoing campaign for Crystal Palace. He has scored a goal after four games. He can give Kwesi Appiah lots of options, he can play at left-back, attacking winger and can also play as a striker.
5. Bernard Mensah
Arguably the most in form Ghanaian player abroad. Mensah plays for Turkish top-flight side Kayserispor. The middleman has been solid for his side. He can play as a defensive midfielder and also surge forward. Before the international break he was on target as his side defeated Fernabache 3-2. With his dazzling skills and fluidity, Kwesi Appiah really needs him in his team.
