duo and have joined Zamalek, with , , and going the other way.

As reported by KingFut, Ghanian forward Nana Poku has reunited with former manager Ehab Galal as the latter wanted to strengthen his attacking force.

Zamalek’s strikers have only managed to score eight goals this season and the club was desperate for a new striker, which made them sign Poku, who is considered surplus to requirements at El-Makkasa.

Poku was struggling to nail down a place at El-Makkasa as he was stuck behind top scorer John Antwi, scoring just one goal in six appearances across all competitions this season.

He will become the club’s fifth foreign player alongside Benjamin Acheampong, Kabongo Kasongo, Moruf Yusuf and Hamdi Nagguez, which means one of these four will be sold this January.

Emad Fathi will also reunite with Ehab Galal, who brought him to Misr El-Makkasa in 2016 from Domyat Club. The midfielder played a major role in El-Makkasa’s qualification for the CAF Champions League last season, making 15 appearances and providing two assists.

On the other hand, Salah Ashour, Ahmed Magdi, and Mohamed Ramadan have joined the Fayoum-based club on a permanent basis. The trio only joined Zamalek last summer, but found regular football hard to come by and agreed to join the Premier League runners-up.

Salah Ashour made only ten appearances for Zamalek, scoring one goal and providing one assist, while Magdi featured only in two games and Ramadan failed to make a single appearance during his time at the club.

Zamalek are currently fifth in the Egyptian Premier League with 29 points, 12 behind leaders Ismaily, while El-Makkasa sit 11th with 21 points.
