Primeira Liga side Sporting CP have announced the signing of Al Ahly target Ary Papel from Angolan side C.D. Primeiro de Agosto.

The Angola international signed a two-and-a-half year contract with the Portuguese side, which will keep him at the club until June 2019.

The 22-year-old has a €60 million release clause in his contract and an optional contract extension by the club until 2022.

Papel has represented Angola 16 times, scoring once against Lesotho in the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualification and twice against Ethiopia in the 2016 African Nations Championship.

It’s worth mentioning that Al Ahly manager Hossam El-Badry has revealed his intention of signing a foreign striker and the Angolan was heavily linked to Al Ahly to strengthen their attack.
