Afena-Gyan’s transfer asking price has gone up since making his first appearance for AS Roma last September and netting twice against Bologna a month later.
In March, he gained a Black Stars call-up for Ghana’s cracker 2022 World Cup playoff games against Nigeria.
He played in both two-legged games as the Black Stars qualified for the 2022 FIFA World Cup on away goals after a 1-1 aggregate scoreline.
Afena-Gyan scored two goals in 25 games in all competitions for Roma last season.
AS Roma recently renewed his contract, however there is also a possibility that he could be shipped out on loan in order to gain more playing time.
Meanwhile, Ghana legend Asamoah Gyan believes Afena-Gyan is destined for greatness, but urged caution in placing pressure on the teenager.
They shouldn’t put that pressure on the boy. It’s too early to make that comparison. He’s a very good player,” the ex-Black Stars captain said on Citi TV.
