Asante Kotoko have rejected Al Hilal’s $100,000 bid for want-away forward Songne Yacouba.
The offer, tabled over the last 24 hours, is $50,000 short of Kotoko’s valuation of the Burkinabe international.
It is not expected to be the Sudanese club’s last move for the 27 year old, but they will have to significantly up their offer if they are to land him.
Yacouba has been in demand from several top clubs on the continent with South African giants Orlando Pirates also heavily linked.
The Porcupine Warriors are ready to offload the former Stade Malien striker having already acquired Ugandan striker George Abege from Kenyan side Kariobangi Sharks as well as former Lobi Stars Ivorian attacker Adingra Moussa.
