United Arab Emirates’ Al-Wasl is on the verge of signing Berekum Chelsea's striker Emmanuel Clottey before the close of the current summer transfer window.

The 24-year-old attacker has been in good form for the Blues in the CAF Champions League this season with 12 goals, making him the tournament's leading marksman so far.

According to UAE daily newspaper Albayan, “Clottey is close to signing with Al-Wasl after two weeks of negotiations between the two parties. The official announcement of the deal could be in soon.”

“The contact with Clottey came at the request of French coach Bruno Metsu, who is convinced of his abilities,” the newspaper added.

The Ghana international has put in heroic performances in the ongoing inter-club competition of the continent, scoring a hat-trick in the Group B opener against Zamalek as he helped his team to a difficult 3-2 win before hitting a double against TP Mazembe in the subsequent match. He, however, failed to score in the 1-1 draw with Al Ahly in Accra two Sundays ago.

Clottey will be joining national team-mate Asamoah Gyan in UAE where Gyan plies his trade with Al Ain if the report is anything to go by.
