Austrian Bundesliga side, LASK Linz, will make an outright purchase of Ghanaian forward Samuel Tetteh from Red Bull Salzburg this summer.

The player is on loan with the “Black-Whites” and despite starting from the bench in most of the 21 games he has played so far, Tetteh has scored six goals and provided five assists for his side.

The Graphic Sports understands that officials of LASK Linz have opened negotiations with Red Bull as they seek to meet his €800,000 transfer fee for a permanent deal.

Tetteh has been used in all the attacking positions this season, ranging from the wings to central striker and he has been lively in the LASK Linz set-up.

The 23-year-old joined Red Bulls Salzburg from WAFA SC in Ghana on July 1, 2016 but started at Liefering, which is the feeder club of the Austrian champions, before being promoted to the main team in January 2017.

He was loaned to LASK Linz on January 4, 2018 and has made a total of 77 appearances, scoring 17 goals and providing 15 assists.

Tetteh was part of Ghana’s Black Satellites team which reached the second round of the FIFA Under -20 World Cup in New Zealand in 2015.
