Former player has been linked with a move to following a two-year absence from the game.

El-Gouna are aiming to sign the former international during the ongoing transfer window in addition to other players as an attempt to reinforce the team. The move could add some much needed firepower to the club’s first team, which is currently languishing in the relegation zone, placed 16th in the table.

The 33-year-old forward has not played an official match since December 2012. His conflict with his last team, UAE outfits Baniyas, caused by his ‘carelessness’, has left him a free agent since 2013.

Zidan refused to become a sports analyst on MBC Masr and has been linked to many Egyptian clubs, as he mentioned in an interview with Al Ain magazine last year, with Cairo giants and Zamalek, Al Masry and Ismaily all being touted as possible suitors.

Zidan, keen on returning to the pitch, has been training hard to recover from his knee injury. He attended a few training sessions during his visit to his former club Borussia Dortmund, and thanked the club and his former manager Jürgen Klopp on Friday for getting him ‘back on the field’.
