EXCLUSIVE | Greek side AE Larissa show interest in Bassem Morsi
Zamalek and Egypt international forward Bassem Morsi is attracting interest from Greek side Athlitiki Enosi Larissa, KingFut can confirm.
The 26-year-old is expected to leave the White Castle in the upcoming summer transfer window after falling down the pecking order as he started only 10 league games last season.
Morsi has been in bad form recently, scoring three goals and assisting five times in 21 appearances last season, failing to recapture his old form with the Whites.
His disappointing season could see him move on loan to Greek side AEL, as they want to strengthen their squad after finishing 12th in the league table.
Larissa, who won the league title only once in 1988, haven’t managed to qualify for a European competition since 2010, when they were knocked out of the qualifying rounds of the Europa League by Iceland’s KR Reykjavík.
They have won the Greek Cup title two times before, and the second division title four times [last in 2016]. They have also reached the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup quarter-finals in 1985.
Meanwhile, Bassem Morsi started his career at Petrojet, before moving to Entag El-Harby in 2013, where his career saw a turning point and his form with the military club earned him a move to Zamalek only one year later.
During his first season with Zamalek, Morsi managed to score 20 goals in 36 games across all competitions, as he guided them to the domestic double, but has since fallen short of expectations.
In the following three seasons, he managed to score only 30 goals in 100 appearances, taking his tally to 50 in 136 games with the Whites.
Overall, he managed to win one Egyptian Premier League title, three Egypt Cups, and one Egyptian Super Cup.
On the international level, he won 10 caps and scored seven goals, but was not named in the AFCON or the World Cup squads despite playing in the qualifiers.
