KingTen: 10 Egyptian Premier League players who deserve a European move this summer
8. Amr El-Sulaya, Ismaily, Midfielder (26)
Ismaily has always produced extraordinary talents, with Mohamed Barkat, Hosni Abd-Rabo and Sayed Moaawad to name a few. At 26, Amr has shown the experience of older Egyptian players, being a cornerstone in Ismaily’s squad since the very first day he was promoted to the first team.
He’s the type of player you can build a team around, a player to keep your midfield in order. The Egyptian international’s shots are what he is known for best. If the experienced midfielder receives the ball from 30 yards out, you can expect to see it nestled in the back of the net a fraction of a second later.
Sulaya’s decision to go forward, stay put or return to execute his defensive duties is outstanding, a box-to-box versatile midfielder.
The 26-year-old has previously sworn an oath to play for no other team in Egypt other than his childhood club, one that he has kept when he turned down an offer from Al Ahly. Amr previously underwent a trial at Villarreal and a loan offer was made, however, it was rejected by Ismaily.
Statistical highlights: Amr played 90 minutes each and every time he featured for his side this season. The player started ALL games when he has been fit in the squad, scoring 3 goals and assisting 7. Ismaily have lost just 3 games this season.
Weakness: Lacks explosive speed. Not the strongest player on the ball.
Player he is similar to: Sami Khedira
