Godfred Donsah is the latest player to be linked with a move to Liverpool. Donsah, 18, is also attracting interest from Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur. According to Sky Italia, the Reds are the latest side to join the race for the Cagliari midfielder’s signature.
In his first full season in Serie ‘A’, the Ghanaian has impressed new manager Gianfranco Zola after being a bit-part player under former manager Zdenek Zeman, until he was relieved of his duties earlier in the season. The midfielder has played 14 times for the Sardinian side, finding the net on two occasions.
Donsah started his playing career in his native Ghana, before moving to Palermo in 2012. Whilst he was with the Serie ‘A’ new boys, he had trials at AS Roma, but returned to Palermo. Last season, he was loaned out to Hellas Verona on a season-long loan deal where he made his league debut playing 22 minutes in a 2-1 win against Atalanta in April 2014.
He returned to his parent club Palermo just as they were promoted back to Serie ‘A’, but joined Cagliari at the end of that season. Since then he has made seven starts, scoring twice, most recently in Sunda’s 1-1 draw at Torino. His other goal came in January as Cagliari beat Cesena 2-1.
The defensive midfielder is another versatile player and can be known to play at right-back if needed. He is contracted to Cagliari until the summer of 2018, meaning that clubs will have to pay a large fee to sign their target. If Liverpool are to take the player away from Italy, then he will naturally be subject to a work permit, something that may delay the transfer.
