Al Ahly are reportedly looking to snap up Nigerian striker Blessing Eleke during the January transfer window.

Eleke is currently on the books of Swiss club Luzern and he is said to have attracted interest from the Egyptian football heavyweights according to King Fut.

“According to KingFut’s sources, the main name on Weiler’s shortlist is Nigerian forward Blessing Eleke, who plies his trade at Swiss side FC Luzern.”

It’s no surprise that Eleke, 23, is wanted by Weiler, giving that the Nigerian played last season under his charge, and had an impressive season, scoring 11 goals while assisting further three in 23 games,” a report read.

Al Ahly manager Rene Weiler indicated that they will be looking to sign new players during the upcoming transfer window.

“Any manager wishes to add ten more players of the highest level to his team,” Weiler said.

“But we discuss such matters internally, get the board’s confirmation, and then we make an announcement to the media.”

Al Ahly already have Nigerian striker Junior Ajayi on their books.
