Ronnie Moore has reiterated his belief that Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro has the ability to perform at the highest level.
Akpa Akpro has starred for Moore's npower League One pacesetters since joining from Rochdale in the summer.
A midweek brace against Scunthorpe took the forward's goal tally to seven for the season and Moore is delighted to be working with a player he admired while in charge of Rotherham and during his previous spell at Prenton Park.
"For ages I tried to get him," he told Press Association Sport. "I couldn't get him when he was at Grimsby, then he was at Rochdale and for some reason I just could never afford to get him in.
"When I actually worked with him and saw the pace he's got and all this desire...he's 27 now and I think he should be getting 20 goals a season at this level.
"Now I honestly believe he can play higher. How high? Well the rest is down to him. I could see him playing at the very top level, but it's very, very hard for a 27-year-old to go up to that level."
