Gouna’s Amro Tarek set for Real Betis move
The 23-year-old Los Angeles-born Egyptian will travel to Spain within two weeks to complete his move to Real Betis, declaring his final match with El-Gouna will be against ENPPI on Thursday night.
In statements made on Ahmed Shobeir’s programme on Sada El Balad TV, the former Wolfsburg player revealed his move to the recently-promoted La Liga side is all but done, after El-Gouna approved a €300,000 offer.
“They have been following me for some time now and they sent an offer to El-Gouna,” Amro told Shobeir.
“I expect the club to make an announcement within the next few days,” he added.
When asked about where the interest from the Spanish side came from, the versatile defender said: “My agent spoke to them and they watched 5 or 6 of my matches, and thank God they were convinced and sent an official offer to El-Gouna.”
KingFut.com previously revealed that Al Ahly were interested in Amro Tarek’s services, shortly after he underwent a trial at Swiss Super League side FC Luzern. Amro later revealed to Shobeir that he had a friendly agreement with Al Ahly’s international manager Haitham Orabi, that if he didn’t travel to Spain, he would have joined the Red Devils instead.
Beginning his career with Asyut Cement and ENPPI’s youth teams, Abdel-Aziz returned to Egypt following a three-year spell in Germany, where he played for Magdeburg’s U-19 side and both SC Freiburg and Wolfsburg’s second teams, before joining Rainer Zobel’s coastal club on a free transfer in 2013.
Amro, who plays as a centre or left-back, has only represented Egypt at the youth level – with one U-20 cap to his name – but has never been called up to the senior squad.
It is worth noting Real Betis have been seeking to bolster their top-flight ambitions next season, and have already completed the signing of Netherlands midfielder Rafael Van der Vaart, while Spanish reports have also linked the Seville-based club to Mohamed Salah.
