Emmanuel Osei, who has received rave reviews for his show-stopping performance is reportedly on the books of capital-based outfits Legon Cities FC and Hearts of Oak.
The 17-year-old wing wizard has shown a lot of promise since his debut for second tier outfit Asokwa Deportivo.
The Ghanaian starlet is similar in terms of trait to Manchester City and Algeria star Riyad Mahrez has been terrorizing defenders for fun in the lower tier league.
Here is everything you need to know about the youngster.
Current Club: Asokwa Deportivo
At 17-years-old, Emmanuel Osei has already been scouted by ‘Moneybags’ Legon Cities and Accra-based heavyweights Hearts of Oak. His conspicuous raw talent has made him highly sort after commodity on the domestic scene.
Born in Kumasi, Ghana , he joined Asokwa Deportivo at a young age and has since made his way up into the first team.
It was here that the 17-year-old honed his skill-set. Like Mahrez,17-year-old is a great dribbler of the ball and he can do that at breathtaking speed while he is a bit selfish [a common trait of nimble-footed players] on the ball at times. Osei is always available for a pass or even a shot on target.
Osei is a tricky customer, using a wide range of step-overs and tricks to get past his opponents. Unlike Mahrez, the 17- year-old is very strong on the ball and that makes it even harder for defenders to take him down.
His creativity and ability to pick a teammate makes him a great avenue on the flanks. What Emmanuel Osei isn’t good at right now is finishing, with the teenager missing more than his fair Share of 1- vs – 1 chances.
While that might improve with time and good coaching, at the moment, Osei is far from a finished product. However, the young Ghanaian star has managed to net his fair share of goals going forward, but there is still a large room for improvement .
His offensive ability is among Asokwa Deportivo’s best at the first team level plus a good work rate which sees him cover some grounds for his team.
However, he lacks the defensive onus as a winger and needs time to improve that part of his game.
At the moment there is little to no doubt that the young attacking prodigy, will earn a big money move but will need some time to perfect his trade.
