Al Ahly submit bid for Bidvest Wits winger Phakamani Mahlambi – Report
According to Soccer Laduma, Mahlambi has attracted interest from a host of top clubs across the world including Benfica and Galatasaray as well as African champions Mamelodi Sundowns, however, it now appears that Al Ahly is the only team in pursuit of the youngster after the PSL transfer window closed yesterday.
The Reds are trying to sign one more foreign player after the EFA agreed to increase the foreign players per team to four instead of three. Al Ahly have three foreigners in their ranks already, Tunisia’s Ali Maaloul, Nigerian forward Junior Ajayi and Morocco international striker Walid Azarou.
Mahlambi is the most recent recipient of the South African Premiership Young Player of the Year award, and should he join Al Ahly he will become the first South African player in the club’s history.
The 19-year-old is considered one of the brightest young talents in South Africa. He helped Bidvest winning their first ever PSL last season, scoring six goals and assisting further seven in 16 appearances.
Overall he scored 10 goals and assisted 10 times in 32 appearances across all competitions since his arrival at Bidvest Wits.
The Red Devils are expected to strengthen before the deadline day on the 14th of September as they will be looking forward to retaining the domestic double next season as well as winning their first continental trophy since 2014.
