When asked whether Fatawu Issahaku could join a Premier League club, Aarons told GIVEMESPORT: “I think Manchester United, eventually, in that Bruno Fernandes sort of role just behind the striker, scoring lots of goals.

“He had an amazing record in the Ghanaian league. He was playing men’s football very young and scored loads of goals in that number 10 position. He is a real name to watch.”

The 18-year-old, who is expected to feature in the World Cup, has already recorded 13 appearances for the Black Stars. 

He made the 28-man squad for 2021 Africa Cup of Nations and was the youngest player in the Ghanaian team and the fourth youngest at the tournament

Fatawu has featured on six occasions for Portuguese outfit Sporting CP so far this term.

Issahaku joined Portuguese giants Sporting from Ghanaian outfit Steadfast earlier this year, with a €60million release clause being inserted into his five-year contract.

The winger ended up heading to Lisbon after also receiving offers from clubs in Italy, Austria, Switzerland and Qatar.

Liverpool, Borussia Dortmund and Bayer Leverkusen held an interest in Atawu Issahaku ahead of his switch to Sporting as well.

He made his debut for Sporting CP in September against Rio Ave in the league in a 3-0 victory, coming on for the final 10 minutes.
