Man Utd eye 15-year-old Ghanaian

English Premier League

A highly-rated 15-year-old Ghanaian forward, who recently went viral after scoring a staggering solo goal, has reportedly caught the attention of some top European clubs, including Manchester United. 

Mizak Asante's journey to prominence has seemingly started after he scored a late equaliser in a Division Two League play-off final between his club Golden Kick SC and Mobile Phone People on Sunday. 

As can be seen in the video below, the teenage sensation twisted and turned past defenders before dribbling beyond the goalkeeper to finish off a memorable strike.

His goal forced the game to a penalty shootout, from which his side would emerge triumphant and go on to achieve promotion to the Division One League, the second tier of Ghanaian football, according to The Sun.  

Golden Kick chairman Joseph Epton has since claimed that the young starlet is starting to receive some serious interest from some big clubs in Europe.  

"Before Mizak scored this goal, we had already showed his highlights – and those of other players – to clubs abroad,” he said in an interview with Accra radio station Onua FM, per GHANAsoccernet. 

"But he was the only player we had feedback about. 

"It has come from Manchester United, Manchester City, Juventus and Genk." 

The young goal-getter himself has revealed he is a big fan of Paris Saint-Germain and France star Kylian Mbappe.  

"I watch a lot of players but the one I like very much is Kylian Mbappe," Asante said in an interview with Joy FM, per The Sun. 

"I like how direct he is with the ball and his pace as well. 

"It's Kylian Mbappe I really want to play like."
