Zamalek midfielder linked with move to Sudani side Al Hilal
Sassi’s contract ends this season, and despite him and the club denying these rumours, several reports suggested that he could leave this winter transfer window.
Several teams have shown interest in signing the Tunisia international, including Qatari side Al-Duhail SC.
According to Sudani news outlet ‘Kafr w Watar’, Al Hilal has also joined the race to sign Sassi. Former Pyramids FC owner and honorary president of Al-Hilal, Turki Al-Sheikh, is reportedly sponsoring the deal.
Sassi has been a central pillar of Zamalek’s success in recent years after guiding the Whites to winning multiple trophies, including CAF Confederation Cup and Egypt Cup.
Since he arrived from Saudi Professional League side Al Nassr, the 28-year-old has scored 13 goals and provided 11 assists in 77 games for the Whites.
Sassi made his first appearance for Zamalek in over a month last week when he made a four-minute appearance in their 1-0 win over El Gouna.
