Al Ahly’s Nasser Maher becomes transfer target for Udinese, Villarreal – Report
The 21-year-old spent the last two seasons on loan at Petrojet and Smouha, before returning to his parent club this season, starting Al Ahly’s two opening games against Ismaily and Al Masry.
And according to France Football, Maher could be on the move again, as Udinese, Villarreal, and several Ligue 1 clubs are intent on signing the Egyptian starlet.
Nasser Maher is not the first Al Ahly youngster to be wanted by Udinese, as Ahmed Hamdi was so close to signing for the Italian side after a trial, but the deal fell through.
Meanwhile, Villarreal invited Nasser Maher to spend a 10-day trial period last year, and even approached Al Ahly to sign the midfielder, but both teams couldn’t reach an agreement.
Maher, whose contract runs out in 2021, has made only three appearances for Al Ahly since being promoted to the first team, but is expected to be a key player for the Red Devils this season.
He has played 60 games for both Smouha and Petrojet, scoring two goals and registering five assists across all competitions.
Maher has also played a vital role in guiding Smouha to the Egypt Cup final last season, which they lost to Zamalek on penalties.
