FC Basel sign Berekum Chelsea youngster Emmanuel Essiam

Swiss giants FC Basel have completed the signing of Berekum Chelsea youngster Emmanuel Essiam, the club has confirmed.

The 18-year-old joins the 20-time Swiss champions on a four and half year deal.

Essiam was a member of the Ghana U-20 team that won the 2021 Africa U-20 Cup of Nations tournament in Mauritania.

“FC Basel are delighted to announce the signing of 18-year-old Ghanian U20 international, Emmanuel Essiam! The midfielder signs from @BerekumChelseaF in the Ghana Premier League on a contract until June 2026,” the club confirmed via their Twitter handle.

“The knowledge of the size and history of the club, the enthusiastic fans, the national and international successes as well as the stories of African players like Mohamed Salah, Mohamed Elneny and Samuel Inkoom, who launched their European careers at FCB, made me feel that Basel would be the perfect step for my development and my career,” he said after putting pen to paper.

“I’m a central midfielder, I run a lot, I like to go into one-on-one fights and I like to play dominant football with my team. With my game overview, I can support the team both in attack and defense. In the game I try to break through the opposing lines with clever passes. I feel honoured and happy to be with FCB!”
