Toronto FC has signed German forward Prince Owusu through 2024 with an option for 2025, the club announced today. He will be added to the club’s roster pending his Canadian work permit, medicals, and receipt of the International Transfer Certificate (ITC).
"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."
Owusu, 26, spent the past season (2022/2023) with SSV Jahn Regensburg of the 2. Bundesliga (Second Division, Germany), where he scored 10 goals in 34 appearances for the club. The Wertheim, Germany native began his career with VfB Stuttgart in 2009, where he came through the youth ranks and made his professional debut for VfB Stuttgart II (Third Division, Germany) against Dynamo Dresden on July 25, 2015. He spent two seasons with VfB Stuttgart II before joining TSG 1899 Hoffenheim II (Third Division, Germany) for the 2017/2018 season, where he scored 13 goals in 27 appearances and finished the season as the club’s top scorer. After the successful campaign, Owusu signed in 2018 with Arminia Bielefeld (Second Division, Germany) and made his debut in the DFB-Pokal, scoring twice in a 5-0 win against Lok Stendal on August 19, 2018. Following a short stint at Aminia Bielefeld, Owusu went on loan to TSV 1860 München (Third Division, Germany), where he made 45 appearances across all competitions (3. Liga and Landespokal Bayern), scoring eight goals with six assists in two seasons (2018/2019, 2019/2020) for the club.
Internationally, Owusu has represented his native Germany at the youth level with the U-15, U-18, and U-19 teams, scoring five goals in 11 appearances. He made his debut and scored his first goal with Germany U-15 in a friendly against Poland on November 8, 2011.
