Three Ligue 1 clubs join chase for Al Ahly starlet Nasser Maher – Report
Three Ligue 1 clubs have reportedly joined the running to sign Al Ahly young midfielder Nasser Maher, according to France Football.
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 now according to France Football, French sides AS Monaco, Stade Caen, and Dijon FCO have joined the chase for the Egyptian starlet.
The Al Ahly youth product has also emerged as a target for several other Ligue 1 clubs, and the Red Devils will be hoping to hold on to him for as long as they can.
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 Reds 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.
