Al Ahly will reportedly demand $7m for Tunisian left-back if he moves during the summer transfer window. 

Al Ahly director of football Sayed Abdel-Hafiz had previously dismissed several reports linking the former CS Sfaxien player with a move back to his native country to join Esperance.

Abdel-Hafiz said that the Tunisia international would remain at the Red Castle until the end of his contract, revealing that the club had rejected an offer from Esperance to secure the services of the player.

Tunisia’s Al Chourouk newspaper, however, reported that Al Ahly have put a $7m price tag on the Tunisian left-back, during a meeting between club president Mahmoud Taher and the technical staff including head coach Hossam El-Badry.

According to the Tunisian paper, Al Ahly have agreed Maaloul’s departure after securing the services of Smouha left-back who, according to Al Chorouk signed a four-year deal with the Red Devils starting the coming season.

Maaloul joined Al Ahly from CS Sfaxien on a four-year deal during the 2016 summer transfer window. The 27-year-old had finished the 2015/16 season as the top scorer of the Tunisian Ligue 1 with 16 goals.

In addition to being a football/soccer and basketball enthusiast, I am currently pursuing a combined BS/MD degree at VCU. I also currently work as a Pharmacy Technician in my spare time.
