OFFICIAL: Mahmoud ‘Kahraba’ signs for Zamalek
Newly-crowned 2014/15 Egyptian Premier League champions Zamalek have started preparing to hold tight to their league title next season by signing the 21-year-old attacking midfielder, as the Whites look to boost their attacking options and strengthen their squad.
The highly-rated player has officially put pen to paper to join Zamalek from ENPPI on a five-year deal for a reported transfer fee of 6.5 million EGP (approximately €750,000).
Kahraba was sent out on a season loan by the Petroleum side to the Swiss team FC Luzern followed by a six-month loan to Grasshoppers. The young Pharaoh, however, failed to impress abroad as he had many disputes with both clubs’ managements. As a result, he returned back to ENPPI during January 2015 transfer window.
The right-footed superstar has managed to score 9 goals in 27 appearances in the Swiss Super League. He then scored six further goals in 17 Egyptian Premier League games since his return to ENPPI last January.
The 21-year-old attacking midfielder led Egypt’s Olympic team on Saturday to seal qualification to the African U-23 Championship after scoring a brace against Uganda in the second leg.
It is also worth noting that Kahraba has five international games with Egypt’s National team to his name, with the latest being the 2017 African Cup of Nations qualifiers match against Tanzania.
Kahraba is Zamalek’s fourth signing of the summer transfer window, following the signings of Arab Contractors duo Mohamed Salem and Sherif Alaa, in addition to Haras El-Hodood’s striker Ahmed Hassan Mekki. The electric forward will wear the number 11 with the Whites.
