Wolves target Benjamin Tetteh can save Burnley from relegation

According to the Daily Mail, Wolves have opened talks with Sparta Prague over Ghanaian striker Benjamin Tetteh.

The same report claims that Galatasaray are also interested in securing the services of the in-form striker but the Turkish giants have had a £7million bid turned down, with the Czech club demanding £11million to part ways with their talisman.

Tetteh has been in fine form for Prague this season, scoring nine goals in 17 games and has also drawn comparisons with former Chelsea forward Didier Drogba.

A product of Ghanaian club Dreams FC, Tetteh made his move to Europe with Belgian club Standard Liege in 2015 but he failed to nail down a regular first team place and spent time on loan at Czech First League clubs FC Slovacko and Bohemians. The 21-year-old has taken his game to a new level since making a switch to Sparta Prague this summer and has now attracted the attention of some of the big clubs in Europe.

Standing at 6ft. 4 inches with a towering frame, Tetteh is an absolute beast of a centre-forward who is known for his well-rounded abilities in the final third. While his burly stature would make an impression amongst many as just a target man operating up front to hold up the ball, Tetteh can be deceptive with his pace, power, athleticism and dribbling.

He is exceptionally quick and agile for a striker of his stature, dropping deep to pick up the ball, drifting wide to cut inside with his pace and trickery and using his awareness to make runs behind the backline. To add to that, he is a clinical finisher from inside the penalty area and has a very cool and composed head on his shoulders.

To put things into perspective, he would be an ideal signing for any mid-table Premier League club but Burnley should make a statement of intent by making a bid to land the in-form Ghanaian talisman in January.

Sean Dyche’s side endured a disappointing start to their Premier League campaign but the Clarets have somewhat breathed life into their campaign with wins over West Ham, Huddersfield Town and Fulham in recent weeks. Burnley’s recent purple patch has helped them climb out of the relegation zone for now but they are still placed 16th in the standings. As things stand, the Clarets still have a lot of work to do if they are to stay up in the Premier League.

And bolstering the attack with a new striker in January would be a step in the right direction for Sean Dyche. Given Burnley’s poor goal scoring record this season, the Clarets need a fresh face or two in their attack to provide competition for the likes of Sam Vokes, Chris Wood, Ashley Barnes and Matej Vydra, all of whom haven’t made any significant contribution in the attacking third.

Benjamin Tetteh might not be a household name but Burnley should take his good goalscoring form into account and outbid their rivals to land the Ghanaian giant in January, which in turn, might help them save their Premier League status.
