Several reports have confirmed that Egypt international Mohamed Abdel-Shafy is nearing a surprise move to in the upcoming summer transfer window.

The Egyptian left-back joined Al Ahli Jeddah at the beginning of the current 2014-2015 season on loan, helping them win the Prince Crown Cup and top their AFC Champions League group to progress to the knockout stages.

Ittihad officials have reportedly expressed their desire in Abdel-Shafy’s services following an impressive season at their rivals, Al Ahli according to reports in Saudi Arabia.

The Cairo-based club have welcomed the transfer in the light of the strong relationship between both clubs, while Ittihad has expressed their readiness to fulfill the financial component set by Zamalek.

Zamalek’s board previously announced their intention to permanently sell for a fee of 60 million Egyptian Pounds ($8 million), but other sources say that Zamalek could settle for $5 million dollars, a fee estimated to be around the 38 million Egyptian Pounds mark.
