    Orlando Pirates reject European offer for young striker!

    Orlando Pirates have reportedly turned down the advances of a European team, for the services of striker Kwame Peprah.

    Peprah had a slow start to life in the DStv Premiership, but finally found his feet and started to hit the back of the net regularly for Pirates.

    Pirates expected to bolster forwards

    Although it has widely been reported that Pirates are set to bolster their forward ranks with the likes of Bienvenu Eva Nga from Chippa United, it seems like that does not open the door for them to lose one of their existing forward assets. That being in the form of Peprah who’s better second half of the season, saw the 21-year-old Ghanaian earn a nomination for the PSL Young Player of the Season award. Beyond that, however, he seems to have attracted attention from clubs beyond South African shores too.

    Turn down Peprah offer

    Soccer-Laduma claim that Pirates have rejected an underwhelming offer for the player’s services from a club in the Greek topflight. 

    “According to Siya sources, European imterest is rife in the Ghanaian. Pirates recently received an offer for Peprah from a club in the Greek topflight; however, Pirates rejected the offer as it did not meet their financial evaluation of the player.

    The source further revealed that Pirates’ asking price for Peprah is around €500,000 and the offer coming from Greece fell way below that figure.” Wrote the publication. 

    More bids anticipated?

    They also go on to state that, it may not be the last time that Pirates could be forced to fend of European overtures for Peprah’s services as the transfer window approaches.

    “Word reaching the crew is that Peprah is still a wanted man in Europe and enquiries about his availability have come in thick and fast. But with Pirates not keen to sell, it remains to be seen whether the Buccaneers cave in to the demand from Europe for their star striker.”

    Peprah finished his debut season with nine goals and one assist in 38 appearances for Pirates.
