FORMER APR and Cameroonian born striker Abbas Rassou has been linked with a return to APR before the current transfer window closes on October 2.
According to a source close to the club, Rassou is a major target for the military side and everything has been done to lure him back to the military club.
Rassou, who is currently on holiday in Oman, has been playing for Morocco’s premier league club Olympique Khouribga.
He is also said to have had a short stint at Hungarian first division club, VTK Diosgyo.
Rassou is expected to strengthen the striking line as APR prepare for what has been labelled as a very demanding season. On top of the league and Amahoro Cup, APR will also compete in the Cecafa Kagame Cup as well as the Caf Champions League; Africa’s premier club competition.
Last year, there were talks of Rassou’ s return but Rene Feller, then APR coach stubbed the striker insisting that he had a big squad.
Rassou joined APR in 2005 on a two-year contract but refused to renew his contract. He joined Hungarian first division club, VTK Diosgyor in October, 2007 before moving to Olympique Khouribga.
During his time at APR, the striker steered the club to five titles; two league titles, Lotto Cup, Cecafa/Kagame Cup and Amahoro Cup.
The 23-year-old joined APR from one of the soccer academies in Cameroon at the time when former Cameroon U-23 coach Jean Paul Akono was in charge of the club.
