Accra Hearts of Oak's new signing, Junior Kaaba, is already drawing comparisons with Inter Milan and Belgium forward, Romelu Lukaku.
Junior Kaaba signed a two-year-deal to join the Ghanaian giants from Cameroonian topflight side Fauvre.
His agent, Amadou Tigana, who also brought Asante Kotoko's prolific scorer Franck Mbella to the country, described Kaaba as a Lukaku-type striker.
“I have been scouting strikers for close to 20 years and it doesn’t take me too long to identify one. Moreover, he has been the top scorer for all the teams he has played for," he told Akoma FM as quoted by Ghanaweb.

“I watched him for two days in two separately games and I was amazed at his performance and I approached him to work with me .
“I give Kudos to the Hearts of Oak Board for getting him on board because there was a deal for him in Algeria and he rejected to join Hearts so they have done well.
“I can’t compare both because they are are all my players and moreover, Mbella has already raised the bar by scoring a lot of goals already in the Ghana league so it’s a challenge for him to reach that level but I trust he can also do it.
"He is like Lukaku type of striker and physically stronger than Mbella but Mbella is more intelligent in some situation than Kaaba"
Junior Kaaba has already started training with the Phobians as he looks forward to his first season in the Ghana Premier League.
