Ghanaian forward Bernard Tekpetey has ignited transfer speculation with his recent comments about his future at Bulgarian giants Ludogorets.
In an interview with Accra-based radio station Asempa FM, the 26-year-old striker revealed his desire for a new challenge and hinted at potential offers from Premier League clubs.
“I can’t say I will stay at Ludogorets,” Tekpetey declared. “I am a player who always wants competition. We are working and looking forward to securing a move from the club in the January transfer window.”
Tekpetey has enjoyed a productive season with Ludogorets, scoring 11 goals and providing 7 assists across all competitions. This form earned him a call-up to Ghana’s provisional squad for the upcoming African Cup of Nations tournament, although he didn’t make the final cut.
He also expressed his commitment to Ludogorets if a transfer doesn’t materialize.
“If I’m unable to leave, I will help the team to fight to play in the Champions League at the end,” he stated, highlighting the club’s pursuit of European glory.
Premier League clubs have been drawn to his potential and recent successes, offering a tempting step up in competition.
However, Tekpetey remains grounded, acknowledging his faith in divine guidance.
“I have offers from Premier League clubs, but I’m looking at what God will do,” he said.
With the January transfer window now open, Tekpetey’s departure would be a significant loss for Ludogorets but could provide him an opportunity to pursue higher-level ambitions.
Bernard Tekpetey joined Ludogorets in 2020, initially on loan from German side Schalke 04, before making the move permanent the following year.
