Ghana international Kwadwo Asamoah has been urged to leave Italian giants Inter Milan by his compatriot Laryea Kingston.

The 31-year-old defender-cum-midfielder has struggled for game time under manager Antonio Conte this season having made eight appearances in Serie A.

Asamoah is in his second season with Inter having joined the club from reigning Italian champions Juventus in 2018.

“For me, I think he still has years ahead of him. So far, he’s done very well for himself but he still has some years in him if he makes up his mind,” Kingston told Goal.

“My only problem is he’s not playing regular football now. That’s my only worry. But if he finds himself a club where he can play week in week out, trust me he still possesses a lot of qualities.

“He plays wing-back or left full-back but sometimes he goes up and you can see he has the eye for assists and sometimes he can also strike.

“It would be good for him to move to a team where he would be able to play in his comfortable position – No.10 or around the box. He can be great and get to the peak that he wants to be.”

Asamoah has been linked with former Turkish Super Lig champions Fenerbahce ahead of the next transfer window.

“For me, I think Kwadwo Asamoah is a No.10 player, behind the striker because that was where I saw him play from the beginning and he did very well,” the retired midfielder added.

“Even when he was with Udinese, he was playing in that position and was doing very well. But sometimes, as a player, if you go to a team and a coach puts you in another position, you have to be a little bit professional.

“No.10 is where he feels comfortable and when you ask him today, he will say the same thing.”

Kingston, who is a former Heart of Midlothian and Lokomotiv Moscow player, played 41 international matches for Ghana and scored six goals.
