Cairo giants Al Ahly have reached an agreement with Simba to sign star man Luís Miquissone in a four-year deal with a contract that ends in 2025.
Miquissone has been linked with Al Ahly for several months now, mainly after his performance in the CAF Champions League, where he netted a winner against the African champions in the group stage.
With the Reds looking to strengthen their attacking options this season, it appears that they have identified Miquissone as one of their main targets.
Al Ahly head coach Pitso Mosimane knows Miquissone quite well as he previously coached him at Mamelodi Sundowns.
The Red Devils are set to pay $900,000 (about R14-million) for the forward, around half of which to be paid upfront, and the rest will be paid in installments.
The 26-year-old Mozambican player caught the Reds’ eyes during his 12 appearances in CAF Champions League with Simba, in which he scored three goals and made further three assists.
The Mozambique international had joined Sundowns back in January 2018, but was loaned out almost immediately to the likes of Chippa United, Royal Eagles FC, and UD Songo, before joining Simba permanently in January 2020.
It’s worth noting that Miquissone will become the first-ever Mozambican to play for Al Ahly, and the first from his country in Egypt since ENPPI legend Mano.
Ex-Ismaily defender Dario Khan, El-Tersana’s legendary keeper Rafael, and former Smouha forward Mbinho are also names from Mozambique that featured in the Egyptian Premier League.
