Career
Djurgårdens IF
Amartey started out playing for second tier club International Allies in Ghana where he was spotted as a sixteen-year-old by Magnus Pehrsson who was on a scouting trip in Africa during his preparation to take over as manager of Djurgårdens IF. When Pehrsson became manager he secured the transfer rights for Amartey from the day he turned 18.[1] To help prepare Amartey for his future permanent move to Sweden in 2013 the club brought him over for shorter periods of time in both 2011 and 2012 where he got to play for the clubs U21 team.[2][3]

Amartey made his Svenska Cupen debut on 3 March 2013 against Umeå FC.[4] He then made his league debut in the 2013 Allsvenskan opening game away against Helsingborgs IF on March 31.[5] Amartey was praised by the media for his strong start to the 2013 season, and foreign clubs like FC Schalke 04 and 1. FC Kaiserslautern started to scout him.[6][7] On May 26 he scored his first ever goal for the club when he headed home the 1–1 equalizer in the 2013 Svenska Cupen Final which Djurgården eventually lost against IFK Göteborg on penalties.[8] After his first season in the Swedish league as an eighteen-year-old Amartey was ranked as the 10th best player in the league by newspaper Expressen and 18th best by Aftonbladet.[9][10] In November 2013 Amartey confirmed that he was in talks with Liverpool F.C. over a possible move to the English club.[11]

FC Copenhagen
In July 2014 Amartey moved to F.C. Copenhagen for a fee of €2.5 million, and made his Superliga-debut on the 20th of July in a match against Silkeborg IF.[citation needed]

Leicester City
On 22 January 2016, Amartey joined Premier League side Leicester City on a four-and-a-half-year contract for a fee around the region of up to £6m.[12]

International career
In May 2012 Amartey made his debut for the Ghana national under-20 football team in a game against Nigeria.[13] He was also selected to play in the 2013 FIFA U-20 World Cup but Djurgården wanted to keep him in Sweden since the tournament clashed with the 2013 Allsvenskan season.[14]
