Moroccan giants Raja Casablanca look set to sign Zamalek winger Hamid Ahaddad.
This is according to Raja’s spokesman Said Wahbi, who revealed that the deal will soon be completed.
“Raja reached advanced stages in negotiations with Zamalek to sign Ahaddad,” Wahbi told Time Sports TV channel.
“Our former striker Mohsen Yagour left to Saudi Arabia, so we’re searching for a replacement. Negotiations with Zamalek over Ahaddad are still ongoing, and it will end shortly,” he added.
Wahbi ruled out Moroccan striker Al Ahly’s Walid Azarou or his countryman Khaled Boutaib as Yagour’s replacement.
“Azarou is a perfect player. Many European teams want to sign him and his financial value is very high in addition to his desire to play in Europe,” he said.
“On the other hand, Boutaib doesn’t participate with Zamalek, and I don’t see that he’s qualified enough to play in Raja,” Wahbi explained.
The Moroccan winger made 11 appearances in the Egyptian Premier League for Zamalek, but he failed to score.
