"Now the investigation is complete and I think I have sufficient reason for prosecution," Darell told local media.
The 23-year-old is accused of two counts of rape of a child under 15 in September 2016 and June last year.
Sarfo, who plays for Swedish champions Malmo, reportedly admitted to having sex with the minor but denies committing a crime as he thought she was older.
"The evidence consists largely of contacts between suspect and plaintiff on social media. In addition, a series of interrogations, including witnesses, has been carried out, said Darell.
The player is currently suspended by his club and receives no salary.
