Ghana's Abu eyes Anderlecht loan move
Mohammed Abu will be interested in joining Anderlecht in Belgium
The 20-year-old, owned by English champions Manchester City, has been honing his artistry at Norwegian side Stromsgodset for the past two seasons.
But a move to Anderlecht will see him taste Champions League action for the 2012/2013 season.
That prospect excites the youngster who played in the Europa League qualifying rounds with Stromsgodset last season.
"I know that Anderlecht have been to watch me," Abu told Het Nieuwsblad.
"I hope I can convince them to take me because I will soon be returning to Manchester.
"They (City) want me to play in a stronger league and speed up my development."
He added: "There have been Dutch teams in the stands, and Spanish and Scottish teams are also interested, but Anderlecht would be a nice opportunity.
"I don't know their players, but I know that they are a team that challenges for the title every year and compete in Europe."
Abu is revered by his parent club Manchester City who have been keeping tabs on his development.
He trained with the first team squad at Eastlands in late last year before joining Ghana's squad for the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon and Equatorial Guinea.
