The Orlando Pirates have turned down a European offer for a teenage striker.

The Orlando Pirates have reportedly turned down a European team's offer for striker Kwame Peprah's services.

Peprah had a rough start in the DStv Premiership, but he eventually found his stride and began to score consistently for Pirates.

PIRATES ARE EXPECTED TO PUSH FORWARD

Although it has been widely rumored that Pirates are planning to reinforce their forward ranks with players such as Bienvenu Eva Nga from Chippa United, it does not appear that this will result in the loss of one of their current front assets.

That came in the form of Peprah, whose improved performance in the second half of the season earned him a nomination for the PSL Young Player of the Season award. Beyond that, he appears to have piqued the interest of clubs from outside of South Africa.

REJECT PEPRAH'S OFFER

Pirates have reportedly turned down a low-ball offer from a Greek top-flight team for the player's services, according to Soccer-Laduma.

"European interest is rampant in Ghana, according to Siya sources. Pirates recently got a bid for Peprah from a club in Greece's top flight, but they turned it down because the offer did not fulfill their financial expectations for the player.

According to the source, the Pirates' asking price for Peprah is roughly €500,000, while the Greek offer is far less. The publication was written by me.

ARE THERE GOING TO BE MORE BIDS?

They go on to say that, as the transfer window approaches, Pirates may be forced to fend off European advances for Peprah's services for the second time.

The crew has received word that Peprah is still desired in Europe, and inquiries about his availability have flooded in.

But, with the Buccaneers unwilling to sell, it remains to be seen whether they will give in to Europe's demand for their star scorer.

Peprah scored nine goals and had one assist in 38 games for the Pirates in his first season.
