However, his future in Portugal remains uncertain as several clubs keep tabs on the player with the summer transfer window set to open in June.

AS Monaco and Lille want to strengthen their defence ahead of next season after both clubs finish the campaign without a trophy.

The Right to Dream Academy Graduate has two more years left on his current deal with the Portuguese outfit, but the club is ready to cash in on the player.

Abdul Mumin made 26 Primeira Liga appearance for Vitoria Guimaraes this season. He joined the club in the summer of 2020 from Danish club FC Nordsjaelland.

The young centre-back was part of Ghana's squad at the Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon early this year and was also a member of the team that helped the Black Stars qualify for the World Cup in Qatar.
