Not only providing some interesting surprises, the 2010 World Cup also produces some exciting talents that attract the eyes of many Serie A clubs, even the less spender squad such as Lazio reportedly are preparing a bid for a talented African “Prince”. For those who watched this year’s World Cup might already notice the certain “Prince” that I’m referring too, he is Ghana’s exciting midfielder, Kevin Prince Boateng.
The Porstmouth’s starlet has shown lots of potential during this World Cup, carrying “Essienless” Ghana’s midfield to compete with many strong footballing countries, taking the Black Star on course for the quarter final where they will try to escape Uruguay’s threat. Kevin’s hard working style and exquisite technique did play a big part in creating that immense force on the African side’s midfield area that allowed them to shine in the event.
Despite has been performing solidly throughout the group stage, Prince Boateng’s undisputed breakthrough comes at the round of 16 where he storm pass the USA’s barricade and scores a cracking goal that opens op Ghana’s victory that day. That exciting performance awards him a sure call from Lazio, as the former German’s youth team player himself that confirms the Biancoceleste’s interest on him stating that he will discuss about everything after World Cup.
I know that Lazio are very interested in me, but right now I must only focus on the World Cup,” Boateng stated to Sky Italy.” It is too important an appointment for me. We will talk about this at the right time.”
Surely, it is rather surprising that only Lazio that seems keen of having Boateng’s services, regarding the capital club is not known for their spending and looks more like a selling team in Serie A. Not only that, with the fact that there’s a big crisis that troubles’ Portsmouth, they would surely take as much as cash they can get for their stars, surely if there was any other team that set eyes on him, Lazio might fail to acquire his service.
However since there’s seem a little interest from other Serie A side, this would be the best chance for the Roman based club to snatch the player before bigger teams that have more money comes in to join the bidding war. Boateng’s quality, will surely bring an enterprising lift for Lazio next season and could also adds more quality for the Serie A as he might be the new start that could light up the Italian league next summer.
