Deal confirmed for 1.7 million euros.
Some info on him which I posted on the Lokomotiv forum:
- 22 years old going 23. Physically very strong.
- Egyptian league top scorer with 9 goals. His team played a total of 14 games so far, not sure if he played all 14 games or not. His team is 3rd in the league so he doesn't get the best service and he still scores the most.
- Egyptian national team player. Played in this years African championship which Egypt won. He scored the winning goal against Senegal in the semis. He started some games, and was subbed in others. Egypt scored 12 goals in 6 matches, he scored 1 but he was responsible for 4 others (2 assists, and 2 penalties where he was fouled and was going one-on-one with the keeper after good work)... So he was responsible for 5/12 goals.
This is his goal (last one) against Senegal.. Rick click, properties, copy paste the URL in the browser to work:
His double against Uganda in a friendly (copy paste too)
His double against Sudan in WC qualification (he is no. 9)
His hattrick against Benin in WC qualification (he scored 1st, 2nd, and 4th goals for Egypt):
He also scored a goal against Senegal in a friendly 2 months ago which Egypt won 4-2. He scored the 3rd Egypt goal here (header):
