Konyaspor has emerged as a key player, negotiating intensively to secure the services of robust Ghanaian defender Lalas Abubakar, currently with the Colorado Rapids.

Since 2020, Abubakar has been a vital part of Colorado's defense, amassing an impressive 105 appearances for the American club. The 29-year-old center-back, with his solid presence on the field, has not only gained the trust of the team but also attracted the attention of foreign clubs in search of reinforcements.

Having had a career in the United States since 2014, Abubakar brings not only on-field experience but also the promise to contribute his defensive skills to the Turkish team.

The ongoing negotiation has been marked by speculation about the transfer cost. However, the latest information indicates that the involved amount will not be exorbitant, making the transaction even more appealing for the Turkish club.

If completed, Lalas Abubakar's transfer to Konyaspor could represent a significant defensive reinforcement for the team, strengthening its chances in both local and international competitions.
