Raphael Dwamena receives Odartey Lamptey's backing to shine in EPL

Ghana striker Raphael Dwamena has been tipped to shine in the English Premier League.

The 21-year old is expected to seal a move from FC Zurich to EPL side Brighton and Hove Albion.

Former Ghana international Nii Odartey Lamptey who played for Aston Villa believes Dwamena has what it takes to be a success in England.

“He is a young player and I have watched him, he has eyes for goals and very composed,” he told Kasapa FM.

“He is strong and I expect him to do well in England, I expect him to continue his performance and try to do what he was doing in Zurich.

“The English Premier League is a tough League and so he must be serious when he is on the pitch but I see him for greatness.”

Dwamena is due to have his medicals where he will officially sign a contract with the Club in a deal worth 12 million euros.

He will become the sixth Ghanaian in the English Premier League this season after Andre Ayew, Jordan Ayew, Christian Atsu, Daniel Amartey and Jeffrey Schlupp.
