Danish giants FC Copenhagen are tracking Ghanaian defender Ebenezer Ofori as likely replacement for versatile defender Daniel Amartey as they ponder the sale of the Black Stars defender to English side Leicester City, according to reports in Sweden.
Copenhagen manager St?le Solbakken has admitted they are likely to lose Amartey with Leicester City leading the race to land him.
Solbakken has confirmed he was in Sweden on Monday to watch Solna on Monday to monitor a number of players in the derby between AIK and Djurgarden and admits he is interested in Ofori.
?I was in Stockholm on Monday to see the local derby and so have tried to find out why I was there. I was there to watch a good football game in an international framework. It?s a great way to see the players and in a framework that is similar to the international. That was why I was there. I want a view and it was not more than that,? he said.
Football Direkt expert M?rthen Bergman has confirmed Ofori is the most likely candidate to replace Amartey at Copenhagen.
?He has been one of Allsvenskan?s top players throughout the year, and given that he is only 20 years so it would have been strange if there are many, many clubs have their eyes on him,? he said.
The former New Edubiase United player, 20, is worth close to 3 million Euros.
Ofori has featured in 18 out of AIK?s 19 league games this season.
