The Ghana Football Association are monitoring Sheffield United goalkeeper Jordan Yamoah Amissah over a potential call-up to the senior national team, the Black Stars, it has emerged.
The 20-year-old shot-stopper was born in Germany to Ghanaian parents and he was even part of the Ghana U-20 squad that featured at the 2019 World Youth Championships only to miss out on the final roster for the tournament.
The lanky goalkeeper who stands at 1.97 meters tall is a graduate of German giants Schalke 04 and Borussia Dortmund.
He started his career at VFL Bochum before joing Schalke 04 and later Dortmund.
Amissah currently plies his trade with the U-23 side of Sheffield United. He returned to the club last month after a loan spell with English six-tier side Spennymoor, where he conceded 16 goals in 9 games.
Ghana monitor 15 goalkeepers
Ghana's pursuit of Amisah comes after a report on Sports Brief indicating that Ghana goalkeeper's coach, Richard Kingston, is monitoring 15 Ghanaian goalkeepers before March's World Cup qualifiers against Nigeria.
The former Black Stars goalkeeper has come under intense pressure after Ghana's poor showing at the Nations Cup in Cameroon, where a lot of blame was laid at the Jojo Wollacot.
Wollacot had a decent World Cup qualifiers but struggled at the Nations Cup, conceding five goals as Ghana exited at the group stage.
The Swindon Town safest pair of hands replaced first-choice Ghana goalkeeper Richard Ofori who had to be dropped due to injury.
The Black Stars trainer also had Richard Attah of Hearts of Oak, St Gallen's Richard Ati Zigi and Manaf Nurudeen of KAS Eupen at the Nations Cup.
Ex-Ghana midfielder Charles Taylor blasts Ghana's goalkeeper trainer
Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Charles Asampong Taylor has blamed Ghana's goalkeeper's coach, Richard Kingston, for the Black Stars' poor showing at the Africa Cup of Nations.
According to the former Hearts and Kotoko player, Jojo Wollacot as Black Stars number one goalkeeper was a wrong choice, and Kingston needs to take responsibility for the Swindon shot-stopper's poor display.
Charles Taylor, who works as a pundit on Angel TV, was very critical of the goalkeeping department of the Black Stars.
