The 23-year-old has already spent four years with the Belgian giants and has made over 100 appearances across all competitions.

The former Berekum Chelsea player was the subject of a bid from Hull City last season, however, Anderlecht opted to keep him.

Acheampong believes a future move to the English topflight could still be on the cards, adding that it will be a dream to see it happen.

“It’s everybody’s dream to play in the English Premier League,” Acheampong is quoted as saying by the BBC.

He added that: “We are just working on it and let’s pray that I get what I want. It’s my dream, it’s my first priority.

“When the [Hull City] move was blocked, I tried to contact the big men at the club, but it was in vain, so I just accepted it and worked to make Anderlecht champions.

“A few clubs in England have been in touch but I cannot say anything right now.”

Frank Acheampong has been a part of the Black Stars set-up since 2013, and will be hoping that his next move enhances his chances of nailing down a place in the starting line-up. | Credit: | Ghanaian Players Abroad: It’s my dream to play in the EPL – Frank Acheampong
