Hearts of Oak striker Mahatma Otto says he is focused on impressing officials of Egyptian side Ismailia to fulfil his dream of playing abroad.

The 18-year-old will join the North African side if he makes the grades on trial.

The former Sporting Mirren striker has bagged in five goals with many assists to help the defending champions finish third for the first half of the season.

He grabbed a brace in the club's 2-0 win over Real Tamale United last Saturday and says he will move abroad if the opportunity presents itself.

"I am going on trials with Ismailia and will join them if they want me," Otto said. "It is the dream of every player to move abroad and continue with his career and Egypt is a fine place to start with so I am hoping to do well with them and if they want to sign me, I would not hesistate at all."

Otto was a member of Ghana's 2009 Under-17 team that failed to qualify for the Africa Championship in Algeria.
