Former Ghana captain, Asamoah Gyan, is set to make a big-money move to North Africa after Egyptian side, Wadi Degla SC, expressed their interest in him.
In a report seen by YEN.com.gh on Ghanasoccernet.com, negotiations between the club and the player's representatives are far advanced.
The Egyptian Premier League side wants to make Gyan their marquee signing for the 2020/2021 season.
Gyan is currently without a club after his spell with Indian side, NorthEast United FC, came to an end in January 2020.
The 34-year-old scored four goals in eight appearances and made one assist in the Indian Super League.
Wadi Degla are fond of signing veteran players to light up the Egyptian top-flight.
The last to play for them was former Chelsea and France winger, Florent Malouda, in 2016 where he scored three goals in 18 matches.
Gyan has made 51 goals in 109 matches for Ghana and is also Africa's highest scoring player in the history of the FIFA World Cup.
The former Ghana captain has previously played for Modena, Udinese Calcio, Stade Rennais, Sunderland, Al Ain FC, Shanghai SIPG, and Kayserispor.
Meanwhile, Gyan, has heaped praises on his older brother, Baffour Gyan.
According to Gyan, Baffour, who is a retired footballer, has been his second god.
In explaining why he sees his brother as his second god, Gyan said he acted as a guardian angel, ensuring that he has a successful career devoid of the mistakes he, Baffour, committed in the past.
