English side Hull City step up Rabiu Mohammed chase

English side Hull City will step up their chase for Ghana midfielder Rabiu Mohammed by holding talks with his French club Evian on Tuesday.

The newly-promoted Premier League side started talks with the club over a possible move for the hard-tackling midfielder late last week.

But with the transfer window drawing to a close in two weeks Hull will intensify their campaign to grab the player after holding a meeting on Tuesday.

Despite the interest from Fulham, Portuguese giants Benfica and Russian side Krasnodar who are also keen on signing the midfielder.

The player is keen on a move to a league where his game would be enhanced so England and Portugal are his preferred destination but the lure of Russian money could prove tempting.

The 23-year-old, a former target for Fulham, would cost around £2million.

Part of the Ghana side that won the 2009 FIFA U20 World Cup, Rabiu has eight caps for the senior team; the Black Stars.

He was also a part of the Evian team that won the French second division title in the 2010-2011 season while on loan from Italian side Udinese, which was sufficient to earn him a permanent deal.

Rabiu scored two goals and had four assists in 28 matches in Ligue 1 last season despite being a defensive midfielder.
