Hearts Confirm Benfica Interest In Striker Mahatma Otoo 

By Patrick Akoto

Hearts have confirmed Benfica have shown huge interest in their striker Mahatma Otoo.

GHANAsoccernet.com reported on Monday exclusively that the Portuguese giants are interested in looking at the impressive attacker.

The 21-year-old is expected to fly out of the country next week to under a medical ahead of a potential move to the European side.

If the medical is successful, the ex-Sporting Mirren will sign a long-term deal with the club.

?There have been lots of enquiries and I can confirm that Benfica has shown a lot of interest in the player,? Hearts PRO Muheeb Saed said

?There is nothing concrete at the moment. But if Hearts and his managers do agree then we have a deal for him to move.?

Otoo has been reluctant to renew his contract with Hearts which runs out at the end of the season.

Many clubs have been linked with the services of the goal machine with local rivals Kotoko the latest to slap in a transfer request.

The former Ghana Under-23 captain is believed to be interested in a move abroad and will relish the chance to play for a respected European side if the aniticipated move goes through.
