Orlando Pirates are closing in on a Finnish club FC Honka Attacker.

“Kick Ghana understands Pirates are bent on closing in on a deal to take Arko-Mensah on permanent deal, though Honka is willing to help facilitate the move if the Buccaneers are ready to cough-out a juicy amount of money to convince them to release their top skanker to them,” a report read.
This publication provided some accurate reports about Kwame Peprah last year when Pirates were looking to sign him from King Faisal.
