Ghana coach Milovan Rajevac is hoping to have the Portsmouth midfielder available for the Black Stars World Cup campaign in a move hugely popular among Ghanaian fans.
And within the present Black Stars playing body, Boateng has a strong support base too with John Paintsil a keen admirer.
"I have watched him play several times and he is a very good player. He has a very good fighting spirit and is a quality player so it will be good to have him," Paintsil told KickOffGhana.com.
Paintsil who is one of the longest serving of the present Black Stars often leads the initiation process for new player which normally requires the new member to perform a dance.
Paintsil added: "If I get the chance to have a word with him now I will tell him how much he will feel at home. By choosing to play for Ghana he is effectively coming home. He will find a group where we really bond together. He won't feel out of place."
FIFA have already confirmed they have all the documents in place now to make the switch happen.
