Ghana's hopes of finding the next talented striker to take over the mantle from current Black Stars goal poacher, Asamoah Gyan has finally emerged in Kuwait, where he is currently making the news headlines.

Ernest Barfo, who formerly had stints with many Ghana Premier League clubs has been tipped as the best player to usurp the reigns of Ghana's highest goal scorer Asamoah Gyan, who has admitted that he still has few more years to hang his boots for the Black Stars.

Barfo joined the Kuwait top flight in the second half of the season and was able score 9 superb goals in just 14 appearances. The striker is now hoping to sign a fresh contract and contribute to the success of Al Nasr.

For many, the stats remains clear for Ernest to take on the mantle from Gyan considering the fact that both players had their early stints with Dansoman based club Liberty Professionals on different occasions at the Carl Reindorlf park.

Before making his voyage to the gulf, Ernest was on the wanted list of most Ghana Premier League clubs with Accra Hearts of Oak, Accra Great Olympics, Tema Youth and other clubs on the continent and Europe all showing interest in signing him.

Ernest has also expressed his readiness to play for Senior National team, Black Stars and hopefully help the country win the African Cup of Nations for the fifth time.
