Fulham and Benfica are interested in signing Rabiu Mohammed

Fulham, Benfica In Hot Chase For Ghana Midfielder Rabiu Mohammed        

Fulham and Benfica are in a tussle to sign Evian Ghana midfielder Rabiu Mohammed, GHANAsoccernet.com can exclusively reveal.

Officials of the two clubs from England and Portugal respectively have held discussions with Evian over the potential sale of the Ghanaian international.

The 23-year-old is one of Evian?s most important players but are struggling to keep him at the club next season as stellar European clubs make enquiries about his availability.

The 23-year-old has been linked with Marseille but insiders have informed Ghana?s number one football website, GHANAsoccernet.com, that Fulham and Benfica are the most serious contenders for his signature.

The discussion is believed to have reached an advanced stage with Evian likely to decide on one of the  two teams.

The ex-Liberty Professionals enforcer is valued at 3million Euros.

Mohammed shot to prominence this year as he has competed with some of the best players in the Ghana squad before sealing a permanent.

He has effortless slotted into Michael Essien?s position in the squad fending off competition from other formidable players like Anthony Annan, Derek Boateng and Emmanuel Agyemang Badu who are all highly regarded.

Mohammed played a key role in helping Evian to reach the French FA Cup final and during last season he was rated among the best midfielders in France.

The Ghanaian international still under contract through to 2016 but could be sold to boost the coffers of the club who are seeking to make a foray into the transfer market.

Craven Cottage boss Martin Jol is looking to inject more youth into his squad and Rabiu, 23, fits the bill.

The Ghanaian, who has been capped eight times at senior level, is expected to cost Fulham around ?2.6m.

Mohammed will talk about his future when returns from holidays in his native Ghana.
