According to Ghana Soccernet, Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane is a huge admirer of the Mazembe star and will try to sign him during the next transfer period.

Asante played the entire game for Mazembe during their 1-0 loss to Sundowns in the Caf Super Cup on Saturday night.

“Ghana winger Solomon Asante is a strong target for Pitso Mosimane’s Mamelodi Sundowns, who have won the Caf Champions League and the Caf Super Cup,” reports Ghanasoccernet.

Asante could be joined by fellow Mazembe teammate Rainford Kalaba at the Brazilians.

As reported earlier by Phakaaathi, the Zambian international is keen to play in the PSL and has admitted that he would love to play for Sundowns.
