Ghana Premier League side King Faisal have declared that they will not listen to offers from any local club, according to inside sources.
Peprah, 20, has just a season left on his Faisal contract and could walk free as a free agent is Faisal fail to renew his contract or find him a new club outside of Ghana.
The promising striker has scored 9 goals in 17 matches in the first half of the Ghana Premier League season and has become a target for all top clubs in the league.
Hearts of Oak have officially written to the Kumasi-based club in a bid to open negotiations to sign him but bankroller of the club Alhaji Grusah has told all suitors the player is not for sale on the local market.
Kotoko, aware of Faisal’s stance, have already began negotiations with second-tier side Bofoakwa Tano to sign striker Takyi Welbeck who has scored 9 goals in 11 games in the Zonal Division One League this season.
Dreams FC, one of the emerging giants of Ghanaian football – have the financial muscle to sign the player, but they have also been given the same response as Hearts and Kotoko.
Meanwhile Ghana Sports Online understands that Dreams have started working closely behind the scenes with the agency that owns the player’s economic rights and represents him in all contract negotiations to map up a strategy on how to sign the player when his contract ends with King Faisal.
Peprah has scored 11 goals in 30 games for King Faisal in two seasons.
