Ħamrun Spartans are in advanced talks to sign Ghanian striker David Yeboah Johnson.
The Premier League leaders on Wednesday completed a major transfer coup when they signed Ivory Coast forward Seydou Doumbia to further bolster their forward line.
However, the Spartans were forced to delve back into the market following the news that Moroccan forward Soufiane Lagzir broke his metatarsal during Sunday’s 2-2 draw against Sta Lucia and is ruled out until the end of the season.
Negotiations with Yeboah Johnson are at an advanced stage and the player is expected in Malta on Thursday to hold the final negotiations before putting pen to paper on a six-month deal with an option of extending it further.
The 25-year-old spent the majority of his career in lower tiers of Italian football as he had spells at Savoia, Catanzaro, Messina and Mantova.
In July last year he joined Fidelis Andria while this season he was on the books of Racing Aprilia.
