Cameroon international goalkeeper Jean Efala
The former Cotonsport goalkeeper, 26, is set to sign for the Uyo side from Cameroon top-flight club Colombe Sportive Sangmélima.
With Ismail Shagari released last month and Emmanuel Iwu not living up to expectations, the Promise Keepers are in the market for a top-class goalkeeper who can compete with Olorunleke Ojo for the first-choice role in goal, and the Cameroonian seems to be the perfect fit.
Akwa, who appointed Brazilian Rafael Everton as their new coach on Monday, are also looking to sign some other big-name players.
Enyimba captain Mfon Udoh is understood to be close to sealing a return to the club.
As reported by 234football, Nigeria international left-back Juwon Oshaniwa is training with the club ahead of a possible transfer.
Rivers United midfielder Emeka Atuloma is also a transfer target, as the club continue strengthening ahead of the new season.
