2 Top Angolan clubs in race for Owusu's signature

Angolan giants Petro Atlético and Benfica Luanda are in a two-horse race to sign highly-talented Ghana defender Seth Owusu.

The 25-year-old has heavily emerged on the radar of the two powerhouses following a breathtaking debut season for Sagrada Esperança.

The former Hearts of Oak left-back enjoyed a fabulous season with the ambitious Angolan side, featuring in every single game since making the switch to make him the most-talked about foreign player in the Southern African country.

Petro Atlético are believed to be the front-runners for his signature after tabling an undisclosed mouth-watering offer for his services.

But Benfica Luanda, who placed third in the Angolan Girbola, are ready to test the resolve of Sagrada Esperança by entering the fray for his signature.

The former Ghana Under-20 defender has rediscovered his form after enduring a difficult spell at South African side Golden Arrows.

The highly-rated defender has experience of various youth national teams in Ghana, having played for the West Africans at the U-17 and U-20 levels.

He was named in a Ghana squad picked for a 2012 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Sudan at home in October 2010.
