Ivorian striker Kassim Lemondy Cissé has touched down in Ghana to finalize his move to Hearts of Oak from lower-tier side, Lanfiara Sport.
The 20-year-old, currently plying his trade in the Ivorian division two league, arrived in Ghana on Thursday, September 7, 2023, to complete the transfer, which is reportedly set to cost the Phobians $30,000.
Cissé, who was the top scorer in the Ivorian Ligue 2 during the 2022/23 season with 16 goals, is set to sign a lucrative five-year contract with the Phobians before the transfer window closes on Friday.
This acquisition aligns with Hearts of Oak’s strategy to strengthen their squad for the upcoming 2023/24 league season.
Cissé’s arrival is expected to add significant firepower to Hearts of Oak’s attacking lineup as they prepare for the upcoming league campaign.
In the competition for a spot in the team’s attacking formation, the Ivorian forward will face stiff competition from players like Kashala Wanet, Issah Kukah, Albert Eonde, Obeng Kojo Jnr, and Hamza Issah.
