Rabat – Three Egyptian football clubs, including Al Ahly and Zamalek, are keen to sign Morocco’s newest football star, Ayoub El Kaabi, reported Moroccan newspaper Assabah.
The 24-year old has been delivering world-class performances while playing with the Moroccan national team during the 2018 African Nations Championship (CHAN), which is currently underway in Morocco. The footballer has scored six goals during the tournament.
El Kaabi, who is currently playing with Renaissance Sportive de Berkan (RSB), previously played with Raja of Casablanca during the 2016-17 season.
El Kaabi made his first international debut for Morocco last week against Mauritania, scoring 2 goals during his first match in the 2018 CHAN. He also shined in Morocco’s second match with a magical hat-trick against Guinea on January 17.
CHAN 2018 provides an opportunity for footballers to prove their skills and capabilities in the hopes of attracting international offers.
Recently, Saudi Arabia’s top-ranked Al Hilal football club recently raided Wydad of Casablanca, enticing its star footballer, Achraf Bencharki, to Saudi Arabia with a lucrative USD 9 million deal. Bencharki’s transfer might be bad news for Wydad of Casablanca, but the player will still compete with the Moroccan team during the remainder of CHAN 2018, according to Assabah.
Both Bencharki and El Kaabi are significant players for the Moroccan national team. Sports observers expect both players to make the roster of the Atlas Lions team, managed by Herve Renard, for the upcoming 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.
It is unsure whether El Kaabi would accept any potential deals. Do you think lucrative offers would help El Kaabi further his professional career?
