Bekoe who is currently unattached returned from Lebanon a few weeks ago after talks with Al Nabi fell through over contractual agreement.

A grapevine sources close to the management of the former African champions disclosed that the head coach of the side, Kenichi Yatsuhashi has not been impressed with the team’s attack and has called for the signature of a potent striker.

The source added that Bekoe is a tried and tested player who they think will be able to fit in well for the coach as he keeps asking for a lead attacker in his team.
