Prince Osei Owusu, a Ghanaian striker born in Germany, has signed with Toronto FC in the ongoing summer transfer window.
Prince Owusu was without a club for a few weeks after leaving SSV Jahn Regensburg owing to relegation.
The 26-year-old striker signed a contract with the Canadian team that runs through the end of 2024, and he will compete against Lionel Messi, the current Inter Miami player and an international star.
With nine goals in the previous campaign, the attacker was Regensburg’s top scorer. His former clubs included Erzgebirge Aue, SC Paderborn, 1860 Munich, and Arminia Bielefeld.
After participating in 83 games in the second division and 58 games in the third division, the attacker is now pursuing his career in the United States.
“We are very happy to add Prince to our attacking group during this summer window,” said Toronto FC General Manager Jason Hernandez.
“He has just completed a successful campaign in Germany and fits the profile of what we are looking to add in a striker.
“His ability to be a reliable target in possession while also being a constant threat with his smart and powerful runs in behind opposing defences will be a welcomed combination here at TFC,” he added.
Owusu has represented Germany at the U-15, U-18, and U-19 levels, scoring five goals in 11 matches.
On November 8, 2011, he made his debut and scored his first goal for Germany U-15 in a friendly against Poland.
