Superdeporte say the forward will move to the Far East in a deal worth €11m, which will be the second highest transfer in Levante’s history following Jefferson Lerma’s €30m move to Bournemouth this summer.

Boateng joined Levante from Portuguese side Moireirense two seasons ago. It took time before he adapted to his new environment, bagging just a goal in 16 appearances.

In his second season, he hit top form bagging six goals in the process, including his first career hat-trick against Barcelona and a goal against Real Madrid in the La Liga.

Emmanuel Boateng has three caps for Ghana, having registered a goal for the Black Stars.

The 22-year-old forward is one of the youngsters who have been tipped to be selected by Coach Kwesi Appiah for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) which kicks off in June.
