Nigeria international  has agreed to join  from Moroccan giants , the club have announced on Friday.

The 2016 CHAN top scorer has signed a two-year contract at El-Gouna, which will keep him at the club until 2020, becoming the club’s 19th summer signing.

Chikatara emerged as a target for Zamalek in 2016 after the CHAN tournament, but he moved to Wydad Casablanca and Zamalek signed Zambia striker Emmanuel Mayuka instead.

El-Gouna have now completed their foreign quota, with the Nigerian becoming their fourth foreign player alongside Cameroon international Joseph Ngwem, Gatoch Panom of Ethiopia, and Ivory Coast’s Abdoulaye Coulibaly.

They are currently ninth in the Egyptian Premier League with four points from three games, and their next game will be against Entag El-Harby on Sunday, August 26.
